hey guys...
well.. i started something.. was supposed to b SUCH a simple DIY but turned into my BIGGEST nightmare...
i awnted to paint the back and front emblems black. i'll post some pictures when they're ready..
anyhow.. somehow i managed to fuk up my car majorly and scratch the *hit out of my bumper...
i need to change it now.. (or can i fix it?!) deep scratches.. and a lot of them.
i was thinkin that while im @ it.. i might as well get an after market bumper with the lips.
any suggestions?! wud ma ride look ugly if ionly had the front bumper of a set installed not the whole set all around?!
Thanks

Just take it to a bodyshop to have the scratches fixed. 3M makes stuff that can fix a cracked bumper.. so scratches are easy, for a bodyman. it would probably cost around 50-80 bucks to get fixed and whatever they charge to paint, typically around 100. Usually having only a front kit without the sides or rear look funny. front and sides at a minimum.

yea, oem front lip is a good idea. a new painted bumper would be about $300. They have unpainted bumpers on ebay for about $75.. and paint depends on where u take it. NHBP 3 stage paint is usually more expensive.
