Thumbs up

i was wondering if the majority of you guys took your e36 into the body shop to have it painted. and if you didn't, how did you paint them, and what kind of stuff did you guys use? like primer, sand paper, etc. -Thanks

i think there is a DIY to color match your side skirts.. the gray is just a coating that can be taken off!

what about the front and back bumper? has anyone painted it themselves? or if you took it to the shop, how much did it cost?

Luckily my friend knows how to paint so I got my entire body kit for about 250. I got quoted at body shops though from anywhere of 400-600 dollars for the front, back, and side skirts. Ill post pics soon of my car
