    Default Textured bumper paint

    Anyone know where I can get some good bumper paint. I bought a standard dual exit exhaust insert from ebay and there is a bit of grazing to the plastic but i'd like to keep it black (not colour code)

    Also would I have to rub the whole thing flat before painting it or would it match in ok? (sorry if that doesn't make sense)

    No its not faded guys, it's like it's been lying on a floor and there is and area where the texturing has been pushed smooth. There is also a nick out of the plastic at the top

    It's gonna need a touch of fine filler to sort some of the bits out. Not bothered though as I got it at a good price.

    I may just c/c it

    Yeah can get them here for that two but i don't like the VXR diffuser with the standard pipes

    I might rub it smooth, prime it and paint it gloss black, just to be a bit different
