Maaco has good prices and does a good job with stock colors.

^^^ and... the "sucks cock" comment on Maaco...

again....

You could try Carsmetics. There are several in CFL. They warranty their work for like 5 years or something. I just thought they were expensive.

heh, theres one wayy past the stadium here in tampa. And lemme tell you something about body kits, royal pain in the ass, tons of sanding, refitting taking off just to get it perfect, it took me about 3 days to get it done, but damn its looking good, cant wait till the paint. Thanks for the suggestions, ill let you know how carsmetics goes.

PS. have to get a custom exaust done, didnt line up with the body kit, need good places, Please post some :D
