What do you guys do when you paint a new body kit to be the exact same color as your car? I tried going to Maaco, they got the VIN number and gave me a quote of $250 just to paint a front lip.. lol. More expensive than the lip itself

Prices vary due to how much prep is needed and the type of paint used. A good paint job costs $$. Maaco is hit or miss, I would try some local shops.

gotta pay to get a nice job done. check out the body shops around you and see what price each one offers. I spent 2 bills on my rear mugen lip to get painted.

Painting is not cheap unless you have hookups like me.

It takes a lot of work to do a great job.
If you prep it and prime it yourself a body shop could shoot it for cheaper.

But there's prep, prime, wet sanding, paint, sand, clear coat, buff. . . etc.
it's an extensive process truthfully if it's bare product.
