Yeah I got quoted $250 to paint my front lip, side skirts, and grill. Do you guys think this is high? I know I could paint it myself but I have nowhere to paint it and don't want it to look ghetto. So please don't say paint it yourself. The guy says he needs to treat it with something because the sideskirts and lip have alot of flex to em and he doesnt want them to crack or chip. He said the paint will have a lifetime garuntee. I think its a little high but I want only the best for my car and I will never have to redo it. Well what do you think? Thanx

Well, I don't know the going rate of paint...but If you get a lifetime gaurantee I would do it.
I like gaurantees :D

that's a decent price, esp. with the garauntee, but shop around and get it done at a reputable shop.
Thats the thing this is a very reputable shop, it was recommnded by many people. I went to other places an dgot quotes of like $150-275 and they all seemed shady. I know this place will do great work, I was just expecting around $150-200 so when he said $250 I took a little dump in my pants.

I think that's an alright price, especially since they have a lifetime guarantee. It costed $60.00 to paint my front lip, and people have told me that I got a good deal. So if you're painting your side skirts + your grill, that seems okay.

That's a pretty good price...I payed $100 bucks just to get my back spoiler painted....and you have a guarantee so I say just do it there...I would but shop around and see what else, but that sounds the cheapest to me

depends upon which paint he is using really. Sounds like he is adding a flex additive to the paint to allow some movement when the kit moves. Is your kit fiberglass?

It's not a kit, its a front lip which i believe is urethane, my oem side skirts, and upper grill. Yes he adding a flex addtive, and spraying them with some stuff that acts like an adhesive.
