I primered the bumper a couple days ago and spent about 4 hours wet sanding and prepping for paint today. The color coat is not finished, I ran out of paint after the 4th coat, I have a couple areas around the fog lights and corner lights that need just a little more paint. After that its on to the clear, I'll probably go with about 4 coats of clear as well. Anyways I snapped some pics, BTW this is not my bumper it Fstgrl5050's....Its going on this weekend. Peace

I used my HVLP (high volume low pressure) gun. The paint is laquer, its the easiest to work with.....Lox

The legs are actually pushing the bottom of the bumper out to keep it sturdy. They are tucked inside the back of the bumper...I'll post some pics after the clear goes on and after we mount it this weekend...Peace

Creepy internet guy here,just wanted to say, that looks great! Keep it up and you will be finding yourself painting everybody else's stuff. Did I mention that I sideswiped a deer last week? When I hit it, the cd player didn't even skip!!!! You do good work. and thanks for everything.

Well I'm not sure if its urethane or not. Its an OEM ford RS bumper, it has the part number stamped right into the "tire well" section....
