FYI: Like in REAL LIFE, you get what you pay for... if you buy a full body kit for $100, chances are that its been used, cracked, or just plain doesn't fit... people sell items at low prices because those items are of no use to them any more.

this also explains why when you walk into a CD/RECORD store and look for music - you can generally expect items from the $2 bin to be mostly horrible (nobody want this stuff)... but items that are on the shelf at $12.99 or even $16.99 are the real music that people will pay that amount for.

This is also the reason why TOYOTA promotes "GENUINE TOYOTA Oil Filter" (or whatever) on all of their sales brochures that you receive in the mail once a month... GENUINE is much better than copy/replica

you pay more for the good stuff - and less for the lower quality stuff rice

300-500+ depending on how much surface area the body kit has.

the rate shops charge are usually about $35 to $45 per square foot of painting surface...

and a flat rate of about $65 to $85 if what you want painted is small and doesnt require much prep-work (such as dash, console, engine plastics...etc)
