    A few parts I have been messing with, The color doesnt match the car perfect but it should work. Click on pics to enlarge!

    Bumper...I putt a lip on it its not perfect but its different and the paint is not done yet. It started as a gray lx bumper.

    Grill and rims...grill needs one more coat and I only did one rim to see what it looked like and I think I like it. I was also thinking about painting the centers of the rims the same color as the grill???

    Good luck, I hope it all turns out great when you finish. I actually just recently painted a GT bumper black and replaced my old cracked LX bumper and it looks great. I am going to paint the rear bumper, side runners, and the rims black soon too. BTW, my car originally the turquoise color you are painting your bumper as.

    Post some pictures when you get it all back together!

    The white car is my parts car and the wagon is what the stuff is going on, the color is way off so I might go back to white bumper and grill and I'll have to get a set of white side skirts and some clear corners to go with it all.

    Yes the paint is WAY off I always think the car is more blue than it is. I just happen to see the can of paint in the store and it looked closer than any other color so I grabbed it to try it out. The white car has a bad tranny and a allot of rust in the back.
