Painting Wings West Front lip

Okay so yesterday I just picked up a 4dr Type W wings West front lip.

I was wonodering do I need to do any preparation to it before I take it to a shop to get it painted?

ALso any suggestions of good paint shops in Norcal? And about how much will it cost to paint the lip?

I wouldnt prep the wing at all, I would let the paint shop do it for best results even if it cost just a bit more.

front around 200-300 and rear wing 300-400 is fair

unless you know someone!

(go to a custom paint shop not a macco!)

I would highly recommend not prepping the surface in anyway because you risk messing something up. If you are looking for a fair deal either call aroundfor price quotes...or hit up some friends for referrals. Good Luck! and post pics when you get it painted and mounted up

thanks

Would the Wings West Front Bumper (only) look good on a sedan? I live in PA ... (terrible roads) and personally I am not lookin to shell out a ton of cash on my 98' accord... I can buy the full kit for 600 or just the front bumper for 200... I really am not lookin to lower it either just swap the bumper thats about it.... any suggestions ... also where can I buy some eyelids for my headlights?
