cost to install and paint a body kit? (Veilside II)
Great news!

The VS II kit (FF GT series) that I had ordered is on its way to the shop! Front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper. I might have to go back to my Ramen noodles diet for the amount of money I spent on it, LOL grin

The shop quoted me $250 for fitment and install, and $550 for painting. So $800 total, barring any unforeseen complications of course!

Do you guys think that is a fair price?

actually choosing one

just remember you get what you pay for and make sure you trust the people putting on your kit...

Don't get screwed over like I did...nice kit by the way thumbsup


To deny the simple pleasures in life is to desire death in the most horrifing way.

I got charged $400 for install/paint on my lip kit, yours takes more paint & time to install, so it's a good price.

3. $400.00 just for painting and $300.00 for install
