Body kit questions.
Okay, i'm getting a kit soon but trying to figure up total cost and all that.
If anyone has any kind of estimates on what they think it will cost to get a Urethane blitz or kaminari kit painted for it would be extremely helpful.
Also, should i have the kit installed THEN painted or vice versa? Advantages/disadvantages?

Dont get urthane, its too heavy, and for blitz it is...HUUUGEEEE!!!

kaminari will be cheaper for install because it has almost perfect fitment where as blitz just straight up sucks for fitment.When you go to the shop to have your body kit installed they will first install it to see if the have to modify anything, after its perfected for fitmnet they will then take it off and paint it then install it again.NEVER drive your car with an unpainted bodykit..you risk being made fun of AND rocks will get into your bumpers and if they dont get out your paints gonna be pretty crappy.

if you have any more questions feel free to ask or send me a PM

FG is fine...had it, just don't hit hard with it or it will chip...if you plan on hitting, get Urethane.

have the kit fitted before painting...then paint and install it...


ranges from 700-1000 for a good job..or more.
