hells yes, but wtf

that almost sounds too cheap because the guy that owns the maroon celica said getting his flares molded and painted cost like 1k bucks. add the cost of the ducts and molding of those (at least $500) and the cost of a bumper install and paint ($400).

thats like $2000 worth of work for $420.

hmmm..im not sure wat the going rates of labour are in the states...but dont ferget that when you mold the flares that they cut away the 'excess' metal under the new flares. otherwise when you get wider rims (which im assuming that you are doing) you are gonna have clearance issues. Thats wat i've been advised to do anyways.

Hell thats cheap infact to cheap. And yes they will have to cut up your fenders like a thanksgiving turkey when you put the flares on other wise when you move your wheels out the tire will push up in to the fender when you go over a bump.

Sounds damn good, they've tried to charge me 400 before for paint and install just on a front bumper, but now i can just take my car and do it all for just about free, besides the cost of paint, i love working at a body shop, is your bumper urethane or fiberglass? Urethane they'll do it for free, theres not going to be any fitament issues really, fiberglass, depending on how good it is, there may be some fitement problems they'll have to take care of.
