dang.. i feel a lot better now. one shop told me 600 for paint and i freaked out. someone told me they would paint it for 350 but i didnt go to them. i felt i could have got it done cheaper but i think i made a good choice with this shop because i KNOW it will looks good. they will work with me. ohh man, i cant wait to change my signature picture smile

well the price varies, if its something like only bumper lips and side skirts (like WW or TRD elegant type) it should be cheaper but if it for full bumper replacements then yes it is pretty cheap smile

its actually from afs motorsports. the shop was suprised how well it fit. flip has the same kit i have on his car and people at the san diego meet couldnt tell the difference from what i hear. and by the way, no kit fits 100%. not even the real veilside.
