Painted bumperettes

The local body shop has them and should be back tomorrow evening. I thought about doing myself but the color match was going to be a nightmare and where the car must have set with one side facing sun more they were different roughness to them.

I will post before and after this weekend. I am so looking forward to the new look.

Just had mine done and the difference is KILLER. This is one of the best upgrades I think that you can do. I too had mine done as the texture was too much for me to think I could have done a great job on. Leave it to the Pros when it comes to paint.

Yup, I had Bumperettes.com here in Charlotte do mine, perfect match. There are forum members that do their own. Mine look factory, I'm happy I had them done right.

+987. Eric, the owner of Bumperplugs, is da bomb. One of the very best vendors to the Porsche community.

Picked them up and can't wait to put them back on. They look great but it is pouring the rain and I use the car as my DD. So will have to wait until Saturday or Sunday whether rain stops. Shop said I could put them on tomorrow but I will wait to be safe.

One of the best $150 I have spent. Now to finish the GPS DIY I have going.
