Thinking about purchasing WW kit...how much for paint?

The only thing keeping me from getting a kit is the high prices of painting and installing the kit. How much do you think it would cost to get the kit painted black and installed?

For those of you who have got kits painted, what did you pay?

Yeah, I just recently bought the 7 piece Wings West body kit for my 2000 Toyota Celica and have been getting high estimates on getting it painted and installed in the Los Angeles area. Modern Images graphics in Huntington Beach recommended me a shop that wanted around $1700 for all 7 piece (3 piece wing) painted and installed. Rod Millen Motorsports recommended me their paint/body shop that does Rod Millen/Rhys Millen's race cars for around $1100. My third estimate was at a body shop that painted and installed my rear bumper when I got rear ended by a Mercedes. Their estimate is at around $1400. I know the term "you get what you pay for" is somewhat true, but that $350 for install and paint beats all my three estimates. One person on this forum recommended TPR in La Puente, CA, but another forum member says they have a hard time matching paint color. If anyone has anymore recommendations on a place I can get an estimate on paint and install, please PM me. Thanks!!!

why don't you just go to a bodyshop and ask around for prices? I'm tired of all these threads about how much it would cost. For example : What if we told you it was around 600 to paint it and then you decide not to get the kit and really it only costed 250-300 at where you live. That's a hard question to answer because it varies places to places. I doubt you are going to drive to whoever had the best price on where they painted it. So it's just best to go to a near bodyshop and ask.

My vizage kit cost me $230 to get painted...but it was from a really small local shop owned and run by one guy...the more reputable shop near me quoted ~$400...and i thought that was high...so you're probably in between those figures for your average body shop. Just make a few phone calls and see who is cheaper...and who you think will do a good job...i made the guy show me pics of his latest jobs...and walked around his paintshop to see what he was working on.

i think what he wanted to know was what an average price was that people here paid, so that he knows a good deal from a bad one. if he didn't know anything about painting (and i'm not saying he doesn't), he may have ended up paying 2000 for paint. it's just to get an idea. maybe he doesn't want to buy the kit and then not have enough to get it painted? now, jl2fast4u, eclipseturbogsx is right, it is best to check in person. i was told by a shop that they couldn't quote unless they saw the kit in person.

TPR did a great job. I was in an accident and no one can even tell that it was crashed. Also they took my wing off. I reccomend them,
