Where are you getting yours painted? I'm interested in getting a nice aftermarket front bumper/lips but don't want to go some place ****ty like Maaco.

I have San Marino red accord coupe.
How much does it cost to get a bumper painted?

I have a friend that does body and paint work. I'm gonna pay her to do it, cause she needs the money and I need the work done.

edit: any reputable body shop can do it. places like Ford and Honda body shops will charge quite a bit more than a regular body shop, but you can go to other places around town, just look in your phone book, call and get a few quotes, ask to see samples of their work, go talk to them in person.

yeah definitely avoid Maaco.

Here's one with a led hid on a hayabusa. I did the retrofit for it not too long ago.

I go to bed early on Sunday, because I have to be up at 4 am for work on Monday morning. ain't got time for that. If it was a Friday night or Saturday night, I'd be in.

slight alteration in plans.

valve lash adjustment after the first 500-1000 miles
4 new fuel injectors, 4 new coilpacks
battery and alternator
front and rear bumper
new headlights, new taillights
55w 5000k hid headlight kit
55w 5000k hid foglight kit
OEM Honda foglight switch
remote auto start
already have the foglight lenses and wiring in a box waiting on installation.

I am not letting that "friend" anywhere near my car.

I got a quote from a reputable body shop in Ft. Collins for $2600 to repaint the whole car, plus the lip and install everything.

its happening in 2015. and most likely getting an ERL forged shortblock for it as well and having that swapped in. Really want the ACURA TSX head, but not sure if I will be able to spring for that or not this year.

In 2016, a turbo and a 6 speed manual are going in. this car is going to get fun.
