No I don't pay anyone for my installs, I use my buddies shop most of the time. Depending on how late it is in the day since it gives me more space to work then a single car garage, also if I come up to trouble he can help me, I've learned my lesson on paying someone to touch my car haha
That lip though, what a pain, but once you get it going I felt kind of stupid haha the only issues about doing the work yourself is:
#1, everyone might see perfection but you see the imperfection
#2, you have no one to blame but yourself it something goes wrong
but hey that is what makes it fun!
Just finished installing my fogs and HID.
Will post pics tonight
You paint, plastidip, or other lol?
It does look nice dude!
It is actually like a charcole grey that is pretty much a black that they make my year Rex in, I know weird, but when I got my first set of housing subaru said I can but the kit separately, well the lied, and when I came in to get the kid they said I couldn't but the housing separately and this is the only one they had in stock, well it just happen it came out beautiful together!!
