The black piece is what he was referring to originally that he already removed.

The lower lip or spoiler is (as you found out) part of the bumper. It'* weird how we've gotten this question posted a few times. I always knew it was part of the bumper, but it DOES look like add-on ground effects when you don't look close. I had my last Bonne for a couple years until my brother one day asked "when did you get that?" pointing to the bumper. I had taken the license plate frame off the front and for some reason it brought more attention to the front end.

Since your car is beige you can still repaint part of it to make it look better and the color shouldn't stand out too much...if you're at all comfortable with a spray can.

I guess what I'll have to do bonnie94ssei, is wait for a warm dry day, and mask off the upper part of the bumper, sand the lower section (spoiler), prime, sand and put maybe 2 coats of paint? Does that sound rignt? And should I apply a coat of clear also?

How bad are your scratches? If they aren't TOO bad, you shouldn't have to sand too much, which means you shouldn't have to prime it if you don't sand through all the paint. But if so, prime, sand, apply color (2-3 coats is probably enough), and definitely apply clear on top. Don't sand the final color coat of course.

If you paint the lower spoiler up into that ridge, it should be hidden pretty well so you don't have to worry about blending it It should look good!

The black pastic piece can be had fairly cheap from GMPD.
