Default Places to install front and rear lips

So i bought a cusco front lip and the paint itself is $150 bucks, but the guy told me that it would cost $350 to install the front lip and the rear aprons (painted) I have.

Is it fair to pay $200 bucks just for installing them? My plan now is to just take the paint for $150, and do the installation somewhere else or by myself. Does any one know where I can get them installed for cheaper? By the way, I need urethane glue for the rear aprons.

Any suggestions guys? Thanks.

Home Depot - Industrial Duct Tape - $7.50/roll. Use enough and you can save the $150 for paint too!

Try PMing Loomin - he may be able to help.

Starlite did mine and has been doing my cars for (yikes, I'm having a moment here just realizing how old I am now...


































































...and-done) for 10 years now. Call them and ask for Vic'. Let that homosexual know that Dalton referred you and he'll be slightly less gay to you.

rear aprons? are they the genuine subaru ones?

cause if they are, they just bolt right on with little to no effort and u can just use 3M double sided tape on the sides to keep them flush with your rear bumper.

Did mine recently, and I can tell u that if I can do it in under an hour, I am pretty sure you can do it on your own . Cause I am very noob .

Probably doing it yourself would be better.
OR
If you feel that you're not comfortable with installing them yourself, you can PM Loomin because he put my bodykit on for me and he did an awesome job.

I couldn't mold my own rear lip so I had to get the body shop to paint and install it.

Also, I can't install anything that isn't .exe

Thanks guys, I tried to install the rear aprons myself, but it turned out that there is a gap even though they are authentic. I guess I would ask veightkiller to figure something out for my front lip and my rear aprons. Thank you for all the replies guys.

Terry: I tried to install it myself, but I don't have any screws that come with it. + There are is a gap at the one end of them. Sigh...

^ what he said, put the 3M tape along the rubber edge (but not too close or else u can see the tape poking out) and just apply a little pressure to hold it in place.
