did you be sure and tell them its a lip kit???????? that makes a world of difference in paint costs
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
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
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
