Goldies look good, any paint on the bumper yet?
Thanks! I really like them minus that centercap that is making me OCD haha, should be here soon. Was just shipped from the dealer the other day.

Also i am buying a decent condition RBP bumper.. gonna save me over $100 and i am not looking for a perfect paint job anyways.

I put the primed bumper back on because when it snowed once at night i was coming back from class and i realized i needed my foglights in order to see anything haha.

Just waiting for a response from the guy with the bumper on a final price and it'll be on it's way here.

Just got my centercap in.

OCD = Cured.



Also i guess this guy DOESN'T want to sell me his bumper.. keeps being flaky on responding to me and i just don't want to deal with it.

Bumper will come back off tomorrow and i'll bring it to the paint shop. Ugh.

Bumper Paint

Well it's finally done $248.64 later, and it looks great. Color matching is almost spot on, but i need to wash the car and get it in sunlight to see for sure.

Pics do the bet talking so here they are. More when it's light out:





Now to fix that horrible quarter damage...

Do I spy an electric car?

-crash
Haha yup.

No one in my family owns it. My dad works for Magna E-Car which is the company doing the motors and software for the Electric Focus, so he brings home some toys every now and then.

Had the Volt in this week. Car is garbage in every way.
