Default As advised, using Cool Vanilla White to repaint SOOO BIG's front and rear bumpers

I'm takin' the good advise from the Forum, brother and sons, "don't paint the bumpers silver!"
I conferred with Aubrey, who's doing the work.
I'm goin' with an original Cool Vanilla White repaint instead of silver.
Repairs needed are, the front bumper clear coat's lifted and pocked along with a few stone chips.
The rear bumper has a parking lot ouchy on right side.

Rear bumper repaint last year was shade too white. Aubrey corrected by color blending the rear quarters.
Because of that initial mismatch, Aubrey'll use two half pints of Cool Vanilla White, to match both front and rear bumpers.
The aftermarket chrome bumper inserts will be added once the paint cures.
Again, thanks for the great opinions.
