Bumper primer.

Hey guys. I'm planning in painting my bump and was just wondering if you knew if Bumper Primer was avaliable at say CT or where I can get some. Thanks.

how long do you want a diy job to last, and how good to you want it to look?? if the answers are "a long time" and "very good", take it to a professional and drop the $200 to get the bumper painted properly.

otherwise, just go buy some primer and paint and hope for the best, its about the best chance you have.

Get some good urethane based primer from the paint store, the kind you need to add hardener to. Get a compressor and HPLV gun and spray it. You will save money in the long run over buying rattle cans. For example, a pint of good base coat is around $40, which will thin down to about a quart. You can paint both bumpers and skirts with this. It would take about 6 rattle cans to do this at about $120.
