I don't have a bodykit but thats a pretty good price. Are they gonna Blend the paint with the rest of the car? Cuz if they don't and they just paint the kit by itself and then put it on the car. It's probably not going to match. You're probably going to be able to see a difference between the color of the kit and the color of the car.

Not exactly, Do to exposure of sun and the elements. The color of the car paint changes eventually. My friend had his bumpers resprayed with the exact ssame factory paint and you could tell the difference in color. My Uncle hooked him up and blended the bumpers to the rest of the car. now you can't tell the difference.

The price is good I would say. I have a ford probe and when asking for prices to paint and install its about 800+ if it fits. if her kit fits well then I would just get it painted and put it on yourselves, but if not its still pretty cheap.

lvslimsdodge, just because you mix the color that the code says it is NOT a guaranteed match. trust me, I am a painter and know quite well that it will not match. Unless the color is jet black, then it'll always match.

i also doubt that they are going to blend the color into the existing paint, unless the kit would be molded which I know it can't be for that price. they will just paint it off the car and be done with it. It shouldnt look TOO terrible
