Acura RSX Body Kits

okay, ive looked all over the web as much as i can.. im trying to buy a body kit for my 2002 acura rsx.. and i cant find one thats canadian or going to be "cheapish" does anyone know any good canadian sites i can purchase a body kit off of.. or a site they used before to purchase one for a good price. Any help is greatly appreciated. I just dont want to spend a fortune because i know its not worth a fortune. Thanks again.

If you're gonna do a bodykit, do full Mugen kit all around.

rocketz is really a hit or miss... they might fit fairly well or they'll be ridiculously off.

k my body kit is all installed and primed.. gets painted tomorow.
but everything fit very well.
only thing that needed a little bit more work was the side skirts.
just had to leave the original lip sides on to make them work better.
but its on all very well and looks awesome.

Why did you install it without painting the parts first? Its easier to paint them off the car and install them after. Unless your respraying the whole car or intend to take them all off again for painting. Either way you should paint them all while they are off the car.

not me doing it for one..? and because the guy used some kind of fiberglass to metal glue.. the the back bumper after its painted will pretty much look like its bonded together.. same with the sides, but the front bumper hes taking off to paint seperately. from my understanding of what the painter told me.

Do NOT let them mold the kit to the car. Keep everything its own piece. Do not fill the seams between the kit and the car before paint. It may look good NOW but if anything happens its a nightmare to fix. Paint the pieces first and then put them on the car.
