Here's a few front bumper pics. I repainted it due to scratches/stone chips, etc. It was done with rattle cans. The clear, SprayMax 2K Glamour High Gloss, with its adjustable tip and sprays like a gun, has an activated hardener, and gives professional results for a fraction of the cost. The reviews on this stuff nothing but goodoes and I couldn't have asked for better.
The base coat was a perfect match. And every drop sprayed out without a blip.
It's as good as factory or better and this is with no wax yet.

Looks pretty good! I may have to give this stuff a try after some body work, though I really need to do the entire car at this point, haha.

Thanks guys. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I wetsanded clear coat scratches out of the hood, trunk, and roof with 3000 grit trimac then polished with swirl remover too. Some show car glaze and 2 coats of Ultimate. Like brand new now.
I did the fuel door(had a few very minor bubbles) and a 4 inch gouge on the back bumper that I used a different clear on and I'm not happy with it so I'm going to reshoot those hopefully this weekend.
I'll get some pics of the whole car when I'm done.

I need to shoot both bumpers at some point and the hood, as it has some decent chips out of it...there's mild hail damage on the roof and a few areas I wouldn't mind doing a little light body work on and then respray my car....the problem comes that I don't have an enclosure to do it in, but more importantly, I'd like to go from Dark Bronzemist to that early 90's bright red Pontiac used....with my tan interior, I think it'd look sharp ( and I'm kinda partial to red ).
