GOOD IDEA OR NOT?

I am in the process of getting my Kaminari kit painted. I just went to the Honda dealer and they estimated that it would cost me $350.00 to paint my kit. I am not to sure if getting my kit painted there is such a great idea. Of course, the price is great, but I am not to sure whether they will do a quality paint job. What do you guys think I should do?

its the dealer so i'm thinking they do a pretty good job. n 350 is a good price to get a kit painted too. i would probably get it painted there if i had to choose.

yeah. go ahead. i had a car piece painted at the dealer in my neck of the woods and the paint still looks glossy and good quality after about 7 months now. i didn't even pay the dealer, i drove in and drove out, and the guy who painted pocketed the money.. but thats not the point. for the quality at a dealer and your price of 350.. i'd say do it

I would think they would do a good job, it being the dealer and all. Plus, $350 sounds like a great price to me. I've gotten estimates for $600 - $700 to paint a kit, so I would go your way.

Thanx a lot everyone. Yeah, I have also received high estimates, one shop that does really nice work wanted to charge me $800.00. In my opinion that is way too much.
