WA Painter

I just paid m3 style front bumper for my car from Jason@Euro-Division.
I am wondering the place to paint the bumper in Western Australia.
I went to a painter in Cockburn Central named Ben Tan (Ben Tan auto is the name of the shop) and he quoted me 500 exclude the fitting.
Any recommendation ?
Thanks

Is there any guide to replace the bumper ? I will try my best to get it fitted on my car. Could you please share the address of the painter if you don't mind ?

My brother had some work done by Freeway Smash Repairs (Donovan St Osborne Park) and they matched the colour perfectly and fitted it.

This was about 3 years ago and from memory, it was around the $500-$600 mark.

i had mine done at a place in morley in behind bunnings, cant remember the name of it though, his name was julio and he did a great job, sprayed my whole car.
he also put a bumper on there and said it took him about 6 hours to make it fit flush with a few modifications done to the bumper
