Anyone know of a good place to paint my front bumper around the Boston area??

I was just wondering if any of you guys knew a good place to get my front bumper painted. There are a few chips ahd scratches on it. I tried touch up paint, but that didn't come out too well. Thanks

I had the same thought as you. Here is what I plan to do.

I wanted to get my rear bumper and front bumper repainted, but I found a place on the internet that sells both the front and rear bumpers painted to match your color. Best of all its cheaper then getting a repaint and you get new bumpers. Mine have a few chips and cuts and scratches so I am going this route. The only thing is I asked for pictures of their paint jobs. They look wonderful but they painted the whole front bumper Tafetta White on the 2000 Sedans the underneath grill part is actually black and looks gay as heck painted all white. So I called them back and they will paint that section black for an extra $50.00.

Heres the links.

Ive bought 2 sets now of the OEM Red/Clears. Make sure you buy them from procarparts if you get them off Ebay. My car got rearended and I had to buy new ones, there really is different quality! The cheap ones dont fit as snug and nice and have small gaps.

I got the OEM spoiler from Spoilerdepot! They did a great job, instructions sucked for the electrical part but then again you dont really need instructions for a spoiler.

The OEM FOgs were a biatch to put on and a biatch to get straight and aligned too!

But I am into OEM parts hopefully that when I resell my car it will help someone should want an accord with spoiler and fogs over one that doesnt! Good luck to ya and lets see some pics.

I bought the Chrome colored bulbs with color. So when you look at them you don't see the colored bulbs its just chrome, but when you hit the turns or the brakes or back up lights you get true color. I just dint like the fact of getting cleared then seeing a colored bulb. But thats my opinion. Once again Ebay was the place to find the bulbs!

Im addicted to ebay but I cant stand this software that allows people to snipe!!!!

that ebay thing is a good deal if you need a new bumper, but its going to be 224.99 shipped. i thought getting it repaint would prolly cost around $50?
