Good body shop for oem lip kits?

I recently got a Honda Factory Performance OEM lip kit for my 04 accord coupe..wondering what's a good body shop to get it prepped/painted/installed for a reasonable price. I'm willing to pay a fair bit to get a decent job done because I don't want to lowball it and come out with it looking like crap.
If anyone knows a good place to recommend I'd appreciate it. THX

Oh and if you know a rough estimate for the quote please say.

depends were you live. In Abbotsford H and R collision does a perfect job and gives a life time warrenty. You are probably looking at 200+

200 only? that seems like an extremely low quote for prep+paint+install....people have been telling me to expect 700+ and anything hovering below 500 would just end up with bad results.

^there will be no prep required if it's just an oem plastic lip.......... the shop will paint it first to avoid prep, then install after... I was gonna guess $175-200.... I got my whole OEM bumper painter for $200 but not mounted.

thanks for the replies but to clarify things.....
it is a FRP fiberglass replica (i know this may not have been the wisest option.. but i'm kinda broke right now so might as well) so i'm pretty sure prep is required for it as its only primmed with a black gelcoat. btw the kit included rear lip + front lip + side skirts.

That kinda changes everything. I would mount it yourself, pull it off then bring it to a shop to just paint it, otherwise those quotes you heard might be accurate. If it was oem then they would just clip/bolt it on.

sorry in my first post I meant it to read "HFP OEM STYLE"...not authentic oem

and yeah my friend suggested doing that (well he said he could do it for me) and just paint it..but since its a replica, fiberglass no less, it probably won't be a direct fit. but, i'm holding my breath on that and hope that it fits well.. gonna try it out tomorrow. that was my concern about mounting it myself because if it wasn't an actual direct fit i might have to get it moulded to make it work.....

but anyways. any other recommendations besides ^H and R? i live in burnaby so that's kinda far for me.

Hey, I could do this for 500

A few factors could change the price, such as your willingness to help fit the parts how they fit and color (red being more expensive)

I am actually hoping to find a few people that want to get their car, bike or boat for that matter painted for a good deal. I figure around 1250 for normal sized car. good deal I would say I usually start around 16-1800

I have about 10 gallons of mixed paint (base clear) Plus about that in tinting bases that I bought from my supplier before they took it off the shelf because of the switch to Waterborne. I have a bit of debt trouble that needs to get cleared up soon before it gets ugly.

some pics of my cars that recently got paint and fiberglass work
