    I was told a few years ago that bumpers are sprayed with special paint as it needs to adhere to a plastic base and that it needs special equipment as it contains cyanide, but i've no idea whether that's true. maybe best to talk to a dealer/garage.

    providing you dont need to much i might b able to provide the paint but due to posting it i couldnt put thinners in with it so you would have to get those yourself!

    or just pop in to your local bodyshop and they will mix it for you fairly cheaply, shouldnt cost more than £20
