well i stopped at the body shop yesterday before work and this is how far they got, he said its gonna cost me 1700 now for everything because of problems that they ran into like they have to custom fab clips for the bumpers to clip into place and stuff, well here is one of the pics i took of the front end

Just curious, why are paying for a shop to install the kit? :lol2:

You could have saved yourself a crapload of cash and do it yourself.

because it has to be custom fitted and custom brackets were made for it to be clipped in, i didnt want the hassel to have to do all that since im a full time student and work at the same time. so i needed it done quickly :lol2:

I call BS on the "custom" clips... not saying you're BSing... the shop is pulling your weenie... all they have to do is drill holes!!! there are no custom clips that need to be made... all you use are the stock bumper retainer clips or GM/replacent bumper clips.... those christmas tree looking black clips you just push in.... simple!!!

Is that a glare or is someone joking around and put a Bentley badge on your car? :lol2:

$1700 still seems a little high for me at least, should be like $500ish for paint maybe $800 for both back and front install shouldn't be $900+!!!! :blink: Unless he's doesn't know what he's doing and messing things up and having to repair them :rofl:

I didn't mean to get you panties in a bunch, or sound like a douche either... I was simply implying that there is no need to fab anything special to do the install... that's all.

All that matters is that you're happy and the car looks good!!! :blink:

oh jeeze guys it'll look perfectly fine when it's done, yes this guy is also painting matts car & as far as i know & remember it will be a two tone paint job.

im pretty sure black & the charcoal color. & painting the body kit to match the rest of the car.
