    I just used krylon fusion it works perfect no sanding or primering, just make sure that the surface is clean.

    if youre asking about the bumper fitting you car, i think it will. but if youre asking about removing the trip from one to put on the other...uh its imposible. thats how the bumpers are made

    Yeah, for fitting, you'll have no problem. What color is your car? If you want an approach to re-doing the bumpers the proper way, I can write you a small write up (will probably end up being big). If not, watch out for that front bumper, it's hell to take off...

    That's got to be the cleanest living DX I've ever seen.

    Wow, that's absolutely amazing-that car does not look like it's 20 years old!
