That's some good work. I will be looking out for you in the near future since I will be getting a front and rear bumper and will need some painting. Thanks

Can you please PM me an estimate to paint the following:

CSL Trunk
CSL Diffuser
CSL Front Bumper

(all LSB - cept the exposed CF on diffuser)

Also, how many layers of paint/clear coat do you typically use on the above?

Thanks,
AJ

hey man...do you add flexing agent to the paint? I heard it prevents the paint from being easily chipped...especially because I'm looking to do the front bumper...

thanks~~

Yeah, I use something called "bulldog" it's really good at making the paint stick to the plastic.
