How would i go about painting my bumper? I have my compressor and a spray gun and i've had little experience painting with the compressor and gun. I had this idea in mind but just making sure for anyone that wants to help me out if i'm doing something wrong.
i was thinking of sanding the bumper (just the red part) until it's smoothed out, primer it red, spray it with the paint then adding the clearcoat. There's a shop around here that told me to bring in a sample of the paint, Like the gas door and they can color match the paint for me.

Does anyone have pics of bumpers like mine, But painted?
You think it'll look better?

if there is alot of texture them it will take a while to make it smooth, reminds me of sanding the interior pieces.

what if he just roughed it up with like 220 or maybe even 180 then 220 on a DA then put a very light coat of filler all over the bumper then smoothed it again with the 220 on a block

but then again that might crack... who knows it might work

OT but what part of southern cali are you from. there are not too many southern california guys on here.

good luck bro
