this is for a everything the front, rear, and sides plus install so I thought that was about right... i got a good deal at Phasenine for the kit $300 shipped just bad service so i figure the whole kit 300 + 600 paint and install = 900 for all this ****... so is that Bad?

well I have a lip kit on my 93 eg hatch. I paid $100 to get it painted and installed. So IMO I think you're paying a bit too much. Even $600 to paint a full bodykit is a little too much. I paid 300$ for my full body kit to be painted and installed.

DrOpPeD2k2CiViC is an unknown quantity at this point
That is extremely high. I paint all the time and they are basically charging you about 500$ in labor. Paint is no more than 100$ if that. But i guess its too late if they have already started. If there is one flaw at all i would Bitch because of the price you paid it should be flawless.

Just my .02

1/2 a quart is a pint which is what they most commonly mix paint in is pints, a average is 70 bucks for a pint of paint, then they have to add in the additives they mix with it, then the clear which is expensive and the additives for that, then the time and labor and everything, id say about 300 bucks being real cheap for it to be done and 450 is what id expect to pay for quality work, you paying 600 bucks isnt too bad, some places are more expensive for their own reasons but if you see anything wrong at all dont let it slip past , point it out and ask them to make it right and it better not be a charge to u

I think that's a bit too high, but you cant forget that some shops have higher quality work than others.
