yea the red doesn't really go with the color of the car.
I'd say if you want the two-tone look go with black, that might suit your car color better.

I thought the formerly red bumper was a different gray than the rest of your car. Is it?

ddi you mask off the bumper before spray painting that bottom part silver? The pics look like there is a lot of overspray.

Yeah I think you should definitely use some silver or something to fix the red on the grill. I must agree that red doesn't 100% match the car at all. Red is nice on some cars...

Haro, I looked for that overspray and found a bit in even the picture of the red bumper area. Was that painted some other color before it was red?

Red is nasty, on both the grilles and the moonroof deflector... The grilles look like lipstick or something

well the grilles are now silver too. yes i masked. the overspray was there when i bought the car and i have spent two years trying to get it off, the previous owner hit something in the front and apparantly fixed it him/herself. I noticed alot of little things not right when i hit the deer last year and had to do a lil cosmetic work but no painting, Can anyone give me some recommendations on what i can use to take off the overspray, keep in mind it has been on there at least 2 years.?

I did leave the deflector red because its got PONTIAC Logo in black on it and took alot of work for me as much as i am not home.

I would try a claybar first then I would buff it off. My car had overspray on the front end when I got it and thats what I did. The clay didn't really effect it but the buffer got it all off.
