Maybe clear coat the bumpers to keep the shiny black look, again looks great, how’s the suspension on the backroads?

The amount of treatment you have on those bumpers I would hate to paint them. They will need to be seriously seriously prepared. Don’t be offended if the bodyshop turns you away.

Yea i kniw mate but have to have them shiningi would have no problem preping them myself and then pass them in for coat of paint..but wat i was thinking was to buy 2 bumpers from a breaker and at least i could prep them in my own time and still have my bumpers on the van so i wouldnt be without it for work..

Looking very well. You would be mad to paint the bumpers, the black breaks it up nicely. Black/red combo is perfect.

The texture bits do not come out. They are moulded to the dash.
