anybody had a bodykit installed? i'm getting an estimate tomorrow and i don't wanna get burned. i talked to the guy at the shop and told him i wanted to keep it under $1000, he said it might be a little more than that. i've heard the place does really good work but over $1K??

i guess if he's including a professional paint job i can understand. when i get a body kit i'm doing a hood scoop and any other body mods i can then get 1 paintjob for everything. might be a while though.

how hard is it to install yourself? Im getting parts to my kit for xmas and i've figured i'll install myself then just use my money for a decent paintjob. The kit apparently comes with instructions, so it cant be too hard can it?

i've never tried, but i've seen some really badly fitted bodykits out there. i'm just gonan have it professionally done since i'll have it at the shop anyways. the paint is what kills ya. + i'm thinking about having it molded on.

i believe so. i've never installed an aftermarket kit before, so i don't know exactly how well they fit.
