Default Finally Done!!

For all you guys who helped me out with ideas of how to get my bumpers painted well I have finally finished them after 2 months. Suprisingly I spent about $300 in all. I paid for the paint, bondo for dmamges on bumpers and about 5 cans of flexable primer. I will have to say the bumpers turned out better than a Maaco job and they were painted outside. If I would have taken it to the body shop it would have been about $300 a bumper to repair the damage and paint them. I will have the pictures up on car domain asap.

I'm sure the pictures coming soon will answer my question, but I'm curious now.
Did you use a paint gun for the primer, or just use the spray-paint style primer?
(I've got a similar repainting project on my hands, I think)

I did not use a spray gun to apply the primer i used a spray bomb and then you have to sand it well so it is as smooth as a baby'* ***. ( Find the flexable primer if you are doing the bumpers) Then just appy the paint. Now for me it took a long time but they turned out better than what any body shop could have done. I did all the body work myself and to give credit to my dad he painted them. And I do have to say he did an excellent job. If you guys would PM me with e-mail addresses it would work better because Car Domain is being a pain in the *** and won't let me add anymore pics.
