um. that would be a no captain if I understand right.
a local shop has an authentic mugen lip kit in stock?
this must be a rather large and established shop.
there aren't that many 04/05 tsx's running around out there
looking for full pwp mugen lip kits.
I would opt for ordering from king if I were you. and
then have that or some other shop do the simple install if
you don't feel comfortable with it yourself.
that way you know you're getting new, authentic, painted,
etc... and no other worries.
my concerns with the current setup:
kit is fake/replica
aftermarket painting over current not as good as oem nbp
kit is used/damaged
not knowing all the details though... but gut says just buy new from king.
oh, and the gut also says get the 06-08 mugen front bumper instead of
just getting the lip like everyone else has and has replicas of. if you're
going to spend the money, spend it on something more unique and badass.
