If it's fiberglass.. It could cost up to $800 to have it done right!

Actually, if it's fibreglass it could cost upward of double the cost of the kit to have it done right (seen it on ricey cars) if it's a $1000 kit.

Personally unless your car has fresh paint, or they use a chip to match the colour, the kit will be a very diff shade...

Should be around $500 for a good paint job of the body kit then $250-500 for install...

maybe your dumb enough to pay those prices but I'm not. I paid 500 for everything and it came out really nice. PM and I'll hook you up

Install it yourself, it's not that hard. You just need a drill, rivet gun, brackets, and bolts/screws
I've never had any trouble doing it in my own driveway, and at least I can have some control over how straight everything is.

exactly... do it yourself, it's not tough... just wait till it warms up a little. :)

I'm sorry but I spoke for a calgary market, it would cost $250-500 to have it installed here...

I'd paint it myself, but you see, most people don't do that, and if he's asking the price to have it installed, I'm sure he won't install it, nevermind paint it.

Then again, if you think $500 is expensive for a good paint job for two bumpers and sideskirts then I don't ever wanna buy a car you've had repainted...
