I just bought a 2008 bumper for $110 w/ fogs and I'd like to be a little original and color match it to my truck, which happens to be a 2002 Deep wedgewood blue XLT.
The bumper itself:
what i'd like it to look like (obviously round fogs vs. square):
Now I am inexperienced when it comes to painting stuff, so I guess im just looking for a little guidance before I cave and go to a body shop.
Basically, Im sure I could find my color online but how should I prep/finish?
A good cleaning is obvious, than sanding im assuming to get rid of that glossy smooth finish. Any suggestions for this process i.e. what grit?
than several coats of the DWB color, but after that how do I regain that glossy/smooth finish like how it comes stock?
Any suggestions and/or helpful tips are most definitely welcome :)
