If you don't mind me asking......
How much did you pay for the primered bumper?

Thanks...
I'm in the same boat. Hate the chrome. I will probably paint it myself and save some $. I get paint from AutomotiveTouchup.com and it's a perfect match. I painted the chrome mirror caps and door handles and it looks great. Their clearcoat is the best.

Is the paint you have in a rattle can?
I bought two rattle cans of Super White to paint my mirror caps and door handles. I put 5 coats on, building it up lightly and I only went through 1/2 a can! I would guess that the 1 1/2 cans I have left would cover the bumper. But I would get another can of clearcoat just for extra protection.

I'm no expert painter but I think a quart would be more than plenty.
I had a 1940 Ford streetrod and had to paint the rear fender (big fender). Minimum mix was a quart and the guy painted it and handed me the leftover paint.....it was about 3/4 of a quart left!

Funny......I'm typing this while watching the Alabama (Auburn) vs Arkansas game.
I see you're location is Alabama and I'm in Arkansas.

I'm defnitely looking into doing the whole color matched thing as well. Chrome sucks! Could you please post some pics of your truck with everything on (bridgcat)? This will be so much less expensive than trying to buy all replacement parts. Thanks.
