Default 2003 bumper

Ok, I've got a blue pt cruiser basic. I think it's the electric blue but I'm not sure. That's irrevelant lol. Since it's a basic i have the black plastic bumper. Now my question is, does anyone know if there is anyway to paint this to get it to match the car, or do I just need to buy a new bumper. Thanks

sure, there is no reason why you cant paint them. you cant paint them like they are for a colored textured look, or primer and sand them for a smooth later model look. either way id suggest a professional do the work. by professional, i mean NOT MAACO.

Does it match the rest of your car? my worry is that since its that black plastic that it wont match the nice shiny blue

itll match if you prime and block the texture out.

Hi guys, you can try it painting yourself. Then if you are not satisfied with the result, thats the time you go to the professional.
