Anyone know where I can find bodykits that are cheap and or worth the price? I've been looking around but most of them are around 500 mark is this standard? That a normal price for a full body kit?

LOL cheap bodykits are SH|T. I've spent many an hour sanding and grinding on a couple friends' sh!tty bodykits, and they were nearly a grand. Unless you're handy with grinding tools and fiberglass, don't cheap out.

I've looked everywhere and I can't find a lip kit for my lude they do make a whole kit right? Side lips and front and rear lips? I just want my cars body lines to look lower to the ground I've already lowered it 2.5 inches I just want to get the body to look a little more Aftermarket

Re: where can i find a nice bodykit that isnt over 700 dollars?

'Nice' and 'bodykit' are two words that rarely go together, especially when you are talking low price. If you research fibreglass manufacturing techniques you will quickly understand what Phantom240 means regarding grinding and fixing. Fibreglass kits rarely fit properly (if at all) without major re-working. If you can do this yourself it's all good - as it's not really that hard.

Yes a full lip kit is available, but they aren't really that easy to find. They do come up semi-regularly though, so if that's what you want then keep your eyes peeled and you'll find one.

Re: where can i find a nice bodykit that isnt over 700 dollars?

Body kits can be nice but its VERY expensive to get it good looking and it's difficult to get it to fit nicely.
My kit was 1500 - 2000 dollars if im translating the right currency >_> and last the paint is expensive and difficult to get the same colour as the car itself.

This is in Norway though, I don't know how its in US.

Re: where can i find a nice bodykit that isnt over 700 dollars?

This is what I plan on putting on my 'lude:

http://www.sarona.com/Sarona/www/index3.html

It looks almost identical to the WWRS kit. Slightly different in the rear.

I'm not really fond of the sideskirts though.

You can piece together a lip kit :D Some Accord and Integra lips fit with a little modification.

1994 accord type R lip kit will fit on the 4G prelude, with some modifications. But worth it

What you mean no modifications. You gotta make a few new holes to bolt it in and it's a little long so you have too cut the edges. Why's it not worth it? I think when there installed makes the prelude look much better. More aggressive I'd say

In the world I come from (240sx), sideskirts don't do crazy corkscrews lol. Overall, I think the kit is gorgeous really. It looks fantastic in that silver color.
