depends on where you brought your parts to get painted, how the fitment was of the parts (major or minor or no problems), the color and quality you wanted it painted, and how much competition that shop had in it's area - plus how well the shop knows it's shit (ask around in the regional forums for a professional shop in your area who has done this type of work before)

Here is a short article for you...
https://www.celicahobby.com/forums/...Paint-Install-How-Much-Does-It-Cost.html

Here is an Octane front that fit so bad, it was never installed to his car...
https://www.celicahobby.com/photos/celica/exterior/bodykit/kit_octane/
It was about 1" too wide and the fenders didn't match-up at all - needless to say, it fit horribly!

Here's another...

The K2 sides ride awfully high, so unless the fitment is perfect, they will also need to be molded - once you start molding, you will have to paint that whole area of the car to match (you might think about a whole repaint as an option)

here is an example of what you get when something is molded...

What I'm saying is that what you are asking is NOT unrealistic, but its also not cheap...

A wise man once said, "those who want something, will do what is needed to obtain it" rice

If you go to a quality shop, that stuff is gonna cost you some money.

The fenders, for example, require the doors and headlights to removed (and possibly the Hood, too) so that they can blend the paint.

That doesn't include the labor to make them fit perfectly.

If you have the money, go for it thumbsup

I have the TCS kit w\ the sides molded and it cost me $800 for all. The fitment too was awful, way off. but after a lot of molding, shaving, and slight modifications, it ended up lookin aight.it can b done... thumbsup youll just have to find a shop thats trustworthy and experienced.
btw, octane front hella sweet!! thumbsup
