Trog2233 is in PA (roughly 2,500 miles east of California grin)


Call TPR tomorrow morning... they are the same shop that did the APR GT300 Celica's paint, and also TRD's SuperCharged Red/White Celica... plus many more that you've probably seen in magazines before wave Many members have had their celi done there too rice

ya...I told him its a lip kit. He knocked $50 off the actual price he quoted me and eventually went down to $400. Is that still expensive for installing a lip kit?

nope.. thats about the usual price for doing a Urethane lip kit...

prep & paint on EACH Urethane piece is about $75 to $100 COST... then you gotta factor in paying for the labor... and next, installation wave not to mention, BUT look at the normal clients TPR gets - not a bunch of ricers, but many big name companies or people who depend on perfect results for their photo/show-quality vehicles...

considering that this is the first time you will be bringing your car there and that the shop doesn't know you from any other person on the street... you got a great deal for $400 paint & install thumbsup

if this sort of thing was so cheap and easy to do.. you wouldn't see so many rice-boys driving around in unpainted kits that don't fit rofl

400 is a good price for paint and install, but i got mine painted somewhere else and had it installed for 100 elsewhere saved me some money

-My friend just bought a body kit for his 2000 integra gs and install it by himself w/ his friend helping. Guess what!? The side kit can move up and down..back and forth thumbsdown puke puke the front and rear bumper doesn't even fit right...gap everywhere...why not...it's only a replica kit thumbsdown and this dude actually drive around with his unpainted body kit acting like his car is real cool and fast. the funny thing is he want to race me and he got an auto wtf

Anyway, I'm gonna re-paint my whole car a different color..maybe baby blue..or light blue...or orange..don't know yet. The body shop quote me 2 thousand dollars for everything + remove all the dents. Is the price good?? Thanx

lose graciously and win humbly
