I decided to post this thread just to explain a few things as people are asking more or less same things all over again.
Most common questions are:

1. Can I get body kit painted?

Answer: no you can not get any body kit already painted in you car color or any other color.

2. Why can't my body kit be already painted and ready for install?

Answer: Reason number 1- body kit can't be already painted because aftermarket body parts don't have 100% fit like genuine parts and there is always some additinal work needed to make them fit properly or at least as good as possible. Sanding, trimming and shaping parts using bondo is normal procedure for aftermarket body kit install.

Reason number 2- body kits also travel great distances and can easily be damaged, cracked or scratched if misshandled so if they were painted paint job would be ruined and all additional time, work and money spent for painting would be wasted. If there is some damage on unpainted parts it can easily be repaired before painting.

3. Can any fiberglass parts be painted?

Answer: yes smaller parts like spoilers, eyelines, some small side skirts or aprons and front grills can be painted so you just install them after you receive them. These parts usualy don't need any extra work for proper fitment and install but we don't recommend having these painted either because of the reasons mentioned before.

4. How can I save some money on shipping for bigger parts like sideskirts, front lips and diffusers?

Answer: as long as these parts are made of fiberglass material (FRP) they can be cut in half in order to make them fit in smaller box. Smaller boxes are much cheaper to ship (up to 1,5meters or 59") for EMS shipping. Everything bigger than that gets much more expensive to ship.

5. How do you put together parts cut in half?

Answer: molding cut parts back together is very easy, parts are just as strong as before, and there is no trace of cutting once parts are painted. This work needs to be done by body shop experienced in working wirh aftermarket fiberglass parts, job for professional.

6. How much does it cost?

Answer: prices differ but almost in any case price for molding the parts back together is much lower than additional payment needed if parts are shipped as they are, - uncut. This is how you can save a lot of money on shipping without sacrificing anything.
Please note that fiberglass replacement bumpers, already painted parts and carbon fiber parts CAN NOT be cut in order to save on shipping!
