I got my kit from them, I already tryied installing it but i came at a halt when it came to the front bumper, it was ever so slightly wider, by like a 1/4 inch on each side. Sides fit perfect, rear seems near perfect too. It's gonna cost me at most $275CDN which is $215USD. It's suppose to be fibreglass, but it came black which I thought only urethane came in. What's the color of primer?

O and you got quite the competition, I might even paint my entire are a different color. I was thinking of that metallic baby blue on the Supra. Ya know, the one from Japan, a friend of Satoshi's.

Usually some sanding or something. If it's really bad, they sometimes have to cut it and remold it I think...I'm not too certain
