Just got my Vizage kit

Ok, Currently On my front and back bumper there are these huge scuff marks that looks like someone drove a bike across them. The front is from when someone swiped me in a parking lot, and the back is from my moms inability to reverse out of my driveway..The front also has huge scratches somehow that I dont know.
Anyway, I want to have my entire front and back bumper repainted when i get my vizage kit painted, now which would be the cheapest/best route to go. 1. Me and my dad install it at home. Now this is with neither one of use ever installing a body kit, but my dad is a carpenter so he has a good notion on how to put things together. And then taking it to the body shop with the kit installed, can the body shop take the front and back bumper off and paint it with the kit on, or how would that work?
2. Just taking the uninstalled kit to the body shop and having them do everything.

Is the Visage kit very hard to install? and is the stock bumper made out of urethane? becuz if it wasnt do they have to use 2 different paints for the kit and the bumper.

you should test fit it, then bring them the pices to be painted. they dont paint it with it on the car. it shouldnt be very hard to install. thumbsup good luck

the stock bumper *is* urethane, but as to which method is cheaper.. contact your bodyshop and get an estimate for each method, they'll let you know what's up thumbsup

if you are going to get your front and rear bumper painted as well as the vizage kit, you might as well have them install it for you there too. because the fitment on mine was perfect, and it comes predrilled will all the necessary hardware, so yea, i doubt they can charge you a whole grip just to get it installed.
