    Default Spray painting front bumper

    I'm thinking of buying a front bumper that has been primed already, can I just spray paint it silver using paint spray cans that you can buy at halfords? Or would it not look right?

    It takes sum skill to get it looking good mate, u would need to flatten off with wet n dry then add a few clear coats. A big part like the bumper would be hard to do imo. Plus the cost of cans of colour and clear laquer would be expensive I would think.

    nooo forget the rattle cans from halfords or anywere even,you need more than
    10 of them and there expensive

    you will get half a litre of paint for around 22 quid then take to a bodyshop
    and they do the rest,atleast if you supply the base coat then you
    know it be right shade and you get a good job too
