Hey all,

I have done some searching, and haven't found exactly what i'm looking for, so i'm gonna ask it. Has anyone removed/replaced the rear bumper of their car? Mine is getting pretty beat up and has some very obvious scratches from previous owners, and i'd rather replace it than pay to have it repainted. if you have, is it easy?
