Default 1st Painted Bumper I've Seen

My first time seeing this PT on the island. Walking outside Wal-Mart and it was parked near the entrance (as you can see the handicap signs), and of course caught my eye.



Mind you, I live on a small island so I know this may not seem like a big deal to most of you, but to me, this mod surprised me since I don't see too many on PTs here. The rear bumper was painted too, and it seems they were going for a chromeish look but clearly ended up more silver.

Maybe it's primer and they'll finish it off in Cool Vanilla.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

The shade they got goes well with thier wheels; maybe that's the final paint.

That's what I kinda think they were going for..only it would've matched if they cleaned their wheels

Hey their Guys,

I am almost willing to bet that they were going for a Chrome look. If you go to the Auto Parts Store and check out the spray paint they usually have some cans of a kind of spray paint chrome, and so on, which when sprayed looks more like a silverish grayish color. Not very appealing to the eye unfortunately. The only company I know of that actually has a paint that does look close to chrome is the ALSA Corp with their ChromeFX Paint which is the stuff they use to paint those Chrome painted cars. They also offer it in a spray can form, but not sure how well that covers from a rattle can over a regular spray gun, or mini jet. Pretty cool stuff though, and not only good for a chrome finish, but you can also shoot candy paint over it for a kind of cool anodized metal look Here is a Link to the page to show you guys what it looks like. Here is a small pic of the Candy Paint over Chrome looks like.



Here is the spray cans. A little expensive, but its the real deal on chrome paint.

Alsa Corp | Paint Template

And here is a Link to the page to show you guys what it looks like. Click on the Demo's

Alsa Corp | ChromeFX: Product Information-Our Chrome FX can produce a real METALLIC FINISH on any surface

Anyways, that is my guess on the bumper paint.

Go easy, and I'll catch yall later.
