paint and body kit cheat?
Hey i just got an idea. We all know how expensive it is hiring a pro to fit a body kit and do a paint job, running into the thousands. Well at my community college they offer an auto body course. They have classes on auto body repair and paint jobs. Im not 100% sure but if your community college offer these courses, you might be able to enroll, take the class and then you MIGHT be able to "donate" your celi or whatever as a class project car (my auto 101 class lets you bring in your car for simple repairs sometimes for extra credit) You can do the job yourself and save a bunch of $$$!!! On the flip side, you're not a pro so there is a chance that you may mess up, mess up pretty bad. But if you're cheap, desprate and willing to take the chance, it might be something worth looking into. I personally dont trust myself so im gonna hire a pro, hehe

the pro's are taught how to do it...

that course probably won't teach you how to do it all correctly.
