FYI you can order factory painted bumper

My factory painted replacement rear bumper arrived today. Its a perfect paint match, color, spray pattern, gloss. Very happy with it. Waited 1 month and cost me $2+k, money well spent IMO

I have found this most often to be the case. I know many favor painting locally but I have always found that you can't ever really match a factory paint job.

Glad it worked out for you.

Thanks! I have my own body shop and trying a few times to replicate factory paint isn't worth the time and effort, better pay a premium for the convenience and assurance of a factory painted bumper. I think it was 40% more than a primered one, so it's reasonable.
