Question about something



OK, this is basically how im planning on doing my prelude with some changes but i've been woundering about how to do somthing in this picture

If u can tell the parts around the turn signal and i guess where the "grill" is that they have been either chromed or just painted silver, is that somthing you have to get painted or can you buy those parts?

thats a mugen (or replica) front bumper.
if you buy that bumper, its prolly gonna be primered, and you can get the grill and fog/turn signal surroundings painted silver.

I would say try it with the spray paint if you don't like it take it to a shop to repaint it. Could save a lot if you do it right or wast like $10 buck.

If you want to get it good and kinda cheep. Do as much prep work then have a shop paint it for you.

You're not going to get that good of a paint job out of a spray can. Especially if you've never painted before. Just spend the money on a shop, not the dealership though.
