what to do with $1000?

Well everone knows it's tax season and the wife and i came upon agreement that i will only spend $1000 on the trep. I did know exactly what i was going to do but now i have second thoughts about it. I was going to get the car painted because the hood is only primered and the handles are shaved and trunk lock covered with primer. I figured i should get the body kit i decided i wanted at the last minute. so what do i do,, go ahead and get it painted and not worry about the kit or do i get the kit and wait to get it painted for a few more months.
P.S. and i really don't want to hear ...."why don't you save it and put it towards your future or something?"

when you are deployed and your wife has a great paying job and moves back home to live with her mother and hardly has any bills at all,,, you seem to have a very large chunk of change in the bank called SAVINGS. tax season is the only time i can spend like i'm going to do. so just don't preach to me on how i should save money. thanks
sorry for the bitching. lol

I'd get the body kit now and wait to get it all painted together, that way you can garenty a perfect match. Paint can differ slightly if not done all at once (some people were complaining about this on their treps bumpers)

Body kit, then go crazy with the paint and do everything all at once.

I don't know about "liking" the primered look but its always better to think long run, get the kit and then repaint it all later. If you just repaint it now, you might end up saying fuck it and not get the kit because of the paint issue.

Why don't you save it for the future or something....
















sorry had to. Get the kit or "NOS" or whatever. Your car, your money, your descision. And if your still not happy, give me the cash. I am really in the same boat right now. Rims, exhaust setup,stereo...descisions suck.

whatever you do, don't be the guy with 3 different colors of primer and a primered ground effects kit.

Get the kit. Paint it later, it will match when you do so.
