got my body kit from the wreckers, do admit was a lucky find but alot of xr's come through the wreckers.
for memory i paid $60 for one side skirt, $180 for a new skirt and$100 for front and back lower spoiler, and sprayed them myself 2 pac of a***..

to buy new can be expensive plus painting and fitting damn hate to think the price of that.

Try www.awcinfo.com for great prices and VERY GOOD customer service. That's where I got my bodykit from and I have to say I was very impressed.

although 2 pac can be harmful (wear the right PPE)its a far better finish and stronger paint than acrylic and a body kit needs this as it more likely to get stones flicked at em, i'm not a spraypainter by trade but its not that hard not get runs in 2 pac maybe your rushing the job alittle.

i do agree acrylic is alot easier to spray but i think if you going to spray anything for the first time dont jump into it ,ask guys who know what there doin for help and do some practice spraying first.

well when were talking body kits or small panels i do it my garage, cover everything and make sure its clean ,nothin worse than dust for 2 pac, so its got to be clean, cause the nature of 2 pac its not good to breath it in .
so you gotta have a good face mask not a dust mask lol.

i dont spend a long time in there prob no longer than 5 mins, get in spray get out and shut it in, let it dry. theres noway i would spray a whole car unless i was in a proper spray booth with proper exhaust fans ect..

but in saying that most likely not to spay a whole car anyway. but spaying smaller parts ie bumpers, body kits, the dog. no worries.

I wouldnt wanna spend more thank a 1000 bucks on a body kit something under that, im lookin at the XR body kit that would look pretty good, dont really like the look of the venom kit, everyone has different tastes i guess.
