What to do with my body kit?

I just received my urethane wings west kit... fits very well and I cant wait to get it installed and painted.

Problem is that I wont have the money to paint it for a couple of months. The urethane kit is black and looks alright on my black celica.

Should I install it and roll unpainted or wait til it gets painted???

There will be no damage done to it as long as it is placed correctly BUT folks will prolly point and make fun of you.

First of all, driving around with an unpainted kit just looks dumb.

Second, the bodyshop that'll eventually paint the kit will charge you extra 'cause they have to spend more time sanding and whatnot to get
rid of all the shit on your kit that's there 'cause you've driven around
like a total dumb ass with an unpainted kit.

dont do it because the double stick tape on it will be ruined when you take it off to get painted, plus it wont look right..

I know its real exciting getting a new mod especially a body kit and it just hurts to not install it but please lol dont drive around with an unpainted body kit no matter how much you want it on, I agree with celicat23, you will end up spending more money to get the stuff off the body kit that you accummulated when driving...

dont do it for the fact of getting road shit on it, dont listen to them about being a "honda". Its your kit if you wanna rock it then do it, dont give a fuck about them.

Yes...please just drive around with the stock bumpers. Dont put a body kit on your car UNLESS it is painted. You will get made fun of and it looks like crap.
