For doing it yourself, It looks great.

As for the primered bumper, the grey had a good look to it while on the car.

Keep us posted

New grill before Paint
you can see why it needed a repaint, it was painted once before but there was lots off dry spray and it wasnt sanded that well so there was peeling

This is the first time I've stumbled onto this thread, and I must say, the new paint job looks incredible, man! I can't find any overspray in any of the pics (could be resolution), and the color matches very nicely. Kudos, man!
