Well I'm trying my hand at some painting this afternoon. I was tired of the chrome on my truck and decided to paint the rear bumper to start. I'm taking some pics as I go and I've one after it was primed and one of the first base coat for now...

LOL yea we have Best Buy here btu we don't have is all the parts stores like you guys have! I used Dupli-color grey primer and Dupli-color's color match for my paint. I used it on my mirrors last and it took a week or two to blend in nicely.

Looks sharp Trevor. Did you do anything to the chrome before you put the paint on ?
