Its interesting that your body shop wouldn't just throw in the install as part of the painting fee. But on second thoughts, I would probably do it myself if Hong kong wasn't the most cramped place on Earth
Well I trust the paint shop but i dont want them doing any of the cutting or putting on the new wheel wells and the new ducts so i decided I have a huge garage, I will just do it myself.

The DIY on youtube is dumb, I removed the rear bumper in like 20 mins with a smoke break.
