    Default Unpainted Body Kits

    What's up with cars driving around with unpainted body kits on them? Just wondering is this a new trend or something? I've seen 2 red civics in the NE (Corral Springs), white and red Del Sol around Forest Lawn, red Probe on Macleod Tr. and others I can't remember. I personally think it looks ugly, if they can afforded to buy these body kits, why can't they afford to paint them first before installing them on to their car.

    I seen that Del Sol on 17ave se so many times but everytime I see it, the body kit is still not painted. It's been like that since 2 years ago.

    Yeah I see that red civic all the time too. I think it comes down to not being to afford to paint it. I mean, if you have the cash, as if you wouldn't get it done. If anyone here has a kit and has it on their car and is not painted... please please, get it painted!

    Yeah i have never understood this either.. it looks so tacky and rediculous. If you can't afford to paint the kit, don't buy the kit. PERIOD. I could understand if someone got it fitted and have a day booked to get it painted in the near future, but it doesn't seem to be the case for some of these people
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    Anyone see a 97 or 98 Camry rolling around with an unpainted kit and a huge aluminum spoiler? Tan colored? I see it cruising on Macleod all the time

    there are other reasons. People put their stuff on to take shape on teh car. And to make sure it fits so they can trim and what not before painting.
    I'm going to buy a 89 camaro.

    I saw some guy on McLeod yesterday driving a silver 5th Gen lude with a black unpainted body kit on it. Had Speedville and "Honda Racing" decals all over it. Also appeared to have his springs cut cause the car was bouncing up and down all over the place. Real safe.

    Driving with Cut Springs + Unpainted Body Kit = Should have saved up more to do it properly.

    Those are legimate reasons, but what is their reason for leaving it on?? The Probe has had that kit unpainted for at least a month.

    OMG, that has to be one of the ugliest cars ever. I really hate it. I see it at least once a day, it has a different colour front bumper and back bumper, a big cheesy aluminum wing, and blue/black tint..

    ....thats my buddy from work, my car-less self got a ride home in his car the other day, i bug him all the time about the unpainted Kit, he dosnt seem to mind the way it looks .....He Has lowering Springs, but its still on the Stock shocks/struts,( will be changed within a month) hence the slightly bouncy ride. Its just really low, and on 18" wheels its gets pretty rough.

    There's a red civic hatch by my house that has a green rear bumper + green front lip + baby blue side skirts... it looks like a lego toy car. I think some people just steal kits off other people's cars and put it on their own. I guess it doesn't matter what color the kit is as long as it fits on your car... :

    James, could you do me a big favour? Ask him why he hangs out infront of Bishop Grandin all the time? And if he knows a lovely lady called Veronika?
