Looks great!! If I had the professional tools I think I'd do mine myself as well. I'm very good with a spray can, but I wouldn't attempt a paint job with it.

Peter did advise on the build up of the bumper which cut down the valleys I had in the bumper. Thanks pete. Vince I just used a normal gravity feed gun with a regulator set @ 45 psi for the paint and 60 psi for the clear coat. I used all dupont products for the painting. Still havent buffed and waxed yet, being that i didnt paint the whole car, the original paint will need that to catch up with the new paint in the shine dept.
