600 so far, they still have to put some work in all around, i just drop my car off on the weekends since i know the owner of the body shop pretty well and i get it back sunday afternoon since i need it for work. and i still gotta pay another 500, but the whole 1100 is for a custom paint job also. the same job anywhere else would have run about 3500 bucks. and the body shop that im taking it to has a real good reputation for nice custom work out here in southern cali. If anyone knows what Route 66 is, a lot of the cars int that car show are done at this shop. Its right by norton air force base in san bernardino,ca. Right by where race wars was filmed in the fast and the furious part 1.
mg auto body is the name of the place...i dont have all of thier info, but if anyone in cali wants it e-mail me

it helps out with the dips like this (front bumper looking higher than normal)...trust me, in person you can hardly tell and going over speed bumps and steep driveways is much easier. it feels low enough !!!

I like it a lot. Great job man.

And when you say custom paint, are you painting the whole car or just the kit?
