Installation Fee
What does it cost at a body shop, to have a body kit installed, only thing is that the front has to be extended a little bit, i dont want it molded on, but i might do that if its near the same price. could you guys get me a estimate. thanks

and and can you include the price to repaint the peices too.

my car is white thanks

You say the front needs to be extended? I dont know do you have any pics so we can get an idea of how much work we are talking here. It could really vary I would just go ahead and take it to a local shop.

If the kit has to be modified, you are looking at a pretty penny. Sorry, I can't give you an estimate, because I havn't had it done before.

You will usually run a lot more for modification of the car or kit in order for it to fit on the car.

If parts of the kit need no modification in order for them to fit to the car properly, then do it youself, it's easy.

Just let the body shop customize/mount the piece that needs to be extended.

Do what you can yourself to keep your cost down, and leave the more difficult stuff to the pros. thumbsup

ok i found out something new today:

After checking for fitment today at my house, i have realize that this is not going to fit on my celica without modifications, this is made the GT and ST, and this is not going to work more then likely without modifications on all the peices. so now i must get a estimation, on modifications on all peices.

i might take it to this one body shop where i bought my car, he said that he know how to install body kits, and he may not charge me as much because i bought my car there.

YES. Very expensive. DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF. I guarantee you will be disappointed. Its not anywhere near as easy as it looks. You got to mold it, shape it, and shave it. Besides, bodies kits are going to require ALOT of Fiberglass. Better off just buying the kit. thumbsup
