yea, ww has their own painting facility where they can use the factory paint code to paint the kit.
i saw it in one of the import magazines when they hooked up a kit on a civic, they showed how ww went through the painting process and then sent it out to be put on by the vehicle owner.
looked quite easy to install too.

well you usually don't get your body kit painted by going to a website..

go to mapquest.com there is probably some car shops near you

the downfall to buying your body kit pre-painted is the simple fact that your cars color has a slight possibility that it wont match that of the pre painted color. Do you park your car outside? you might have fading. Do you drive in cold weather where they use salt on the road? you might have fading. Do you live in hot areas of the USA, like Florida and Texas? you might have fading. And how often do you wax your car? the new pieces might be a lot more shiny then your car.

...just a few things to think about when trying to save money by buying pre-painted parts.

When something just looks too good to be true - check out all the angles before diving in.

...If your car is within the first year, if you wash it about once a month, you keep it in the garage most of the time and you dont own a "carbon blue" colored celica - then I say GO FOR IT thumbsup

Like Isaac Said, you should make sure that your car paint hasn't faided much before you decide to order a painted body kit. A body shop can match the paint of your car by scanning your car. I watched my local body shop do it.
