Body kit and other misc summer shit

Back from school and able to finally screw around with the celi again. So first in line is to finish up the interior painting. I am also saving for the VS kit. I hear fitment on the VS is pretty good, however, how much is painting? My car is silver (hey at least it's not white!). Anyone with a similar situation fill me in on the total cost?

yeah toiletpaper is right should be $600-900, like $200-450 in materials and then the labor, it all depends on quality and how well they will match the kit with the rest of the body, and what the fuck is wrong with white?? i think they look way cleaner than a silver celica.

not the car color. But it's one of the hardest colors to paint cause there are so many different shades of it. So it tends to cost more. Silver is hard too but white is the hardest to match.

do you keep car in garage or driveway, it would be easier for the shop to match color if you keep your car in your garage since the sun isnt fadin it
