Body shop recommendation

I have two lips that were bent quite out of shape and one of them even cracked during shipping. Is there a bodyshop that could fix them?

Thanks in advance.

It will be a pain for any shop to do. Are the lips fiberglass?

any pictures? what is your budget? (might not be worth it to fix as buying a new one might be cheaper depending on the damage)

package wasn't insured when they shipped it out?


I can get a rough estimate for you at my friend's shop if you like.

The silver is the rear lip and the black is the front. Only the rear lip is cracked. The bend in both lips I can prolly fix myself with a heatgun. So I need the crack in the rear lip fixed as well as repaint and install. I also have the sides which are new and needs painting too.

So all these parts are OEM?

Rear lip - fix crack, paint, install
Side skirts - paint only
Front lip - paint only?

Just PM me if you're still interested.

You were literally shipped garbage
I hope you didn't pay anything or very little for what you got. Unless it was noted prior to buying it.

Whatever you do, avoid DKCustom5 unless you like paint runs, dust spots, poor prep work.
