    Hey guys,
    I've painted two bumpers so far (one being my own) and I've decided to offer a rear bumper color-matching service to members in the Bay Area. It takes around 4 hours to do and I can take it off and install it back on for you, but you have to come to me.

    I figure $100 should cover the price of paint, materials and time on my part.

    Let me know what you guys think! :)

    Update from this weekend, colormatched a white and radiant red bumper:

    With all the money you're getting from making the Satoshis, you should take a little vacation down to So Cal so that a bunch of us can get our bumpers painted. ;)

    would that price be the same for a front bumper as well? I'm trying to color match mine but I still haven't gotten a reg. one, still have my base model on.

    lol for sure, $100 isnt all that much revenue considering paint costs $53 a pint shipped, you wanna help me build a paint booth?
    Front bumper is a lot harder to take off, prep (because of all the molding, curves, taping...rear bumper requires no taping whatsoever), I dont think I can do the job nearly as fast as I can do a rear bumper :( I'd really have to think about how much I would charge for a front bumper

    I have a White Tacoma and I definitely want this done. Let me know when you can do it. My bumper has a small ding, though. Is that something you can take care of or should I get it fixed first?
