How long does it take?

I'm trying to get a spoiler painted.
Do you guys know how long it takes to take it to a shop and do it?

Isaac did his side skirts in one month... I dont want to wait long before I get mine...

And is one month really necessary for painting a spoiler?

huh? where did you read that from...

my entire R2 kit was done all within a couple of days - back in early 2001

i havent switched out my sides for anything else since - still got the same R2 skirts

...

There was NOTHING on my car that took an entire month to paint - there was however something that I dropped off at my painter to get done that sat in their shop for an entire month before he even touched it - but that was during SEMA 2003 and I had told my painter not to worry about it and to take care of the SEMA cars before touching my stuff (not a single problem - things were so laid back then, I went as far as to bring in lunch and a case of drinks for them a few times over that period of time)... Oh, and to add to that - the paint was done at no charge since we exchanged favors on the side

I bet any shop can do your spoiler all within a weeks time (or less)

I had my Mitsubishi fully repainted at "1 Day Paint & Body" (6859 Van Nuys Blvd, Van Nuys California)... dropped it off at 8am on a tuesday and picked it up the next day around noon wave

It should take a couple days depending on how busy the shop you find is. It's only going to take a week when I take my car in monday to match the paint on my body kit and fill in the flaws that's just because they are very meticulous. thumbsup
