Was that the last effort?

I take it you didn't want it colour coded then :wink:

Won't have any trouble selling it, people alwas seem to be looking for 16v/williams front bumpers.

Well this is my 1st bumper...this was sprayed up by a company 100miles away from my house. The one above is the replacement i got the friday before FCS.

But unfortunatly they messed up the bumpstrips (after being shown at great effort by myself when i dropped i off) and i wasnt happy. So i rang them the next day and gave them chance to fix the problem but they didnt want to know. ' Got bigger fish to fry'

So i cut my losses and bought another new one !

Lovely :x

I think he'd of been wearing it if I was in your shoes.

well its supposed to be like that apparently....but no other williams ive ever seen looks like that.

The maskings not even straight that annoyed me the most, and the tape has left a white witness line surrounding the bumpstrip.

Im toying with the idea of brushing small amounts of paint stripper on to try and remove the excess....but im not sure if it will react with the bumper.

So u all know the reason why i had a black bumper on at FCS now !

Mask it up and give it a go. use cotton buds and you should be fine.

Well i will try a section on the back to check the compatability...but i will see if it sells first.

Been looking at a matt black bumpstrip paint to spray on to cover it up again.....but im just concerned that my 'other' new one is done right this time.

Lol. Did a blind man mask up the bump strips?

If I were you, just feather down the edges of the paint on the bump strip, mask the rest of the bumper up and paint the bumpstrip in black aerosol.
