look at the front bumper, a portion of what used to be red is now black, and in my opinion it looks a lot better...

what i did... i just sanded the areas i was going to paint, sprayed a layer of primer, the sprayed flat black

Well done, yes, it does look alot better now it's painted, was that bumper not originally black at the top anyway? it just looks so false before it was painted!

Well done, was that bumper not supposed to be black at the top anyway? it just looked tacky before you painted it IMHO
