yup i agree with that one, if the whole body kit is too expensive, just do a little at a time...common its just cosmetic..

replica body kits can be made to looks pretty good, but they are not cheaper than the real thing. a brand new full replica mtech2 kit will cost around $1000 as will a salvaged factory kit. the biggest difference is that the replica kits are made out of cheap fiber glass and will without a doubt require modification to fit. as some may know, modifying fiberglass is a very costly procedure. its not as simple as cutting and adding plastic filler as it would be with plastic factory parts. another down side is that it is very hard for a body shop to paint cheap fiber glass, most parts will require around 5 resprays to look right and you will run the risk of the parts cracking under heat while the paint bakes.

i would strongly advise against buying fiberglass parts unless they were truly unique.

i ran into some on google, i dont recall any of the names but just do a search, another great way is to go 2 a junkyard like a pick-a-part
