    Bumpers? You get some cool chrome front bumper that I don't know about? ;)

    I've seen the rear bumper painted black and it looked good. Not so sure about painting that front bumper, but either way, post pictures!

    nah man.............i do everything myself. i prepped and cleaned it all real good, then brushed a few coats of the liner on..letting it dry with each coat. turned out pretty good to me.

    to me, its worth it. prep is super easy(including removing the tag lights and bumper caps), and the quart of herculiner i used, which i still have more than half left, was only like $30. a few hours of time, and you are done.

    get the quart of herculiner at pepboys, and you will also need some 200 grit sandpaper(its what i used anyway), and a short bristled stiff brush for brushing it on, or a small roller if you wanna go that route.
