painted bumperetts?

Has anyone painted those black bumperetts by themselves??
I just saw 2004 special edition seal grey... and body colored bumperetts look much cleaner..

I'm sure that do it yourself, they would probably come out better than stock.

That said... Eric the bumperplugs guy goes to a great deal of effort to get the paint matched, sprayed and cured just right. Even after years of experience with bumper plugs, it took him several tries to get the right look. I doubt your average body shop could do as good a job for twice the money.

^I agree.

Biggest thing to remember is the paint needs a flex modifier. You can get paints color matched here:

Or just buy the painted bumperettes here:
