body kit question
do you paint the body kit before or after you install it?

Well... you need to test fit the kit and then make the necessary drill holes, then you can paint it before you install back on again. Course you primer and all that jazz.

This is of course if you are keeping you stock color. If you want to re-paint the entire thing (In this case, having a paint shop do it.) You can just install it and drive it over to the shop. It also depends on how your side skirts are going on. Obviously, if you are molding them you have to install them and then get them painted, but if you are using the double sided foam tape and screws to hold them on, then you can install, remove, paint install. Eh, it all depends!


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
