I used Automotivetouchup.com They put the stuff in spray cans, send a couple of test cards for you to test the paint match before you commit. Apparently if the color is off they will fix it. I followed the instructions they give on the web site and it came out perfectly smooth and a near perfect match.

I had seen enough rhino lined bumpers so I wanted to do something different.

If anybody is serious about doing this let me know and I will give more details.

That turned out really nice. I would be interested in more pics of the bumper and the company you got the paint from. Curious if they can match pyrite mica for my fender flares.

CBI integrates the hitch into the bumper...

No that is not the factory hitch. The factory hitch hangs down way to much. CBI is good about getting max ground clearance with their bumpers. I should say that the way Nathan did mine is different from usual, because I plan to mount an M8000 with WARN multimount winch cradle as it would have been too short to put the pin in. Normally the hitch is cut at an angle for an even better departure angle, but Nathan realized that wouldn't work with the Warn winch cradle and he fixed it by making it square, so it looks a bit like stock. I am not sure exactly how much higher the bumper is from the stock setup, but I would say 3-4 inches higher for more ground clearance.

Here is a pic of the hitch.

Just google automotivetouchup.com and search for your paint color.

I will admit my paint job came out slightly lighter than the body, but I beiieve it was my fault and here is why.

They tell you if a metallic paint is too light then paint thicker coats and if too dark paint lighter coats. It was 4 am and I was trying get it all done in 1 night, so I wasn't really paying that much attention to how dark or light it was. I also was cheap and only bought 1 can of clear coat.

I my defense, light metallic colors from what I understand are some of the hardest to match.

If you want to do a bumper. Buy 2 cans of primer, 2 cans of base coat and 2 cans of clear coat and use it all. Buy prep solvent, compound and eveything esle they suggest to use. Paint the inside of the bumper with rustoleum automative primer and enamal before doing the outside to save money. I did not seem to have a compatibility issue with the rustoleum and the touch up paint where they overlapped a bit on the edges. The paint will run 80-100 dollars.

Sand like hell 80, then 120, and then 220 grit vibrating orbital sander. Use a little body filler for any deep scratches that might have occurred in shipping. Mine showed up off the pallet because the shipping company handled it so poorly!

Here is a close up, so you can see what I mean.

What amazes me is how smooth the paint came out.

It is smoother than my factory paint with the exception of places that I could have sanded better.

I also bought a front receiver hitch to mount the winch front and rear. The rough paint on the D shackle bracket is where I marred the paint when I failed to pad the 2x4 I used to pound the bumper into place. It fit nice and snug!

I will try to post a pic with the winch in place. I bet it looks sweet.

Yes, I felt like I took a risk trying to match the color and not sure if I could get the paint smooth with a spray can. They do put a nice spray tip on the spray cans. I had a few times when the paint spattered, but it dried smooth without a problem. I had to wet sand one single 1/4 inch drop of paint that splattered out of the tip. That was the only problem I had with the automotive touchup.com products.

I would say to anybody to give the automotivetouchup.com paint a try. I was very impressed with how easy the paint went on.

It is very doable.

Can't wait to get my CBI hidden front receiver hitch installed. Here is how it looks on the back.

I had the chrome rear bumper with trailer hitch. I love the towing package for the auto transmission cooler, 7 pin, and all that stuff, but that big chrome thing just didn't go with the truck at all and that hitch was too low.
