Man that looks good! I've been thinking of doing the same thing, and after seeing yours I might just have to pull the trigger.

I've only seen a few with the OEM skirts and valences painted, but yours looks the best in my opinion. Works great with the wing, rack, and black wheels.

Well my parent own a body shop, but my dad said he'd charge around $600 for the valences removed and painted, it be extra with the wing since it need to be blocked and sanded and extra 250 for that cause mine was chinese one so it needed little more body work
