    I used the same paint as the roof. I’ve just repaired and painted the front bumper too. Pics to follow :D

    I now have the front bumper back on. It was pretty buckled and bent. I managed to smack it back sort of straight and used some body filler to get some of the creases out.

    Couldn’t justify spending the $300 dollars or so a new one right now. It’s not perfect, but pretty good!

    Looks great to me too!

    And, it won’t be as painful if some incompetent driver, bumps into it, attempting to park. ;)

    Bumpers aren't the softest metal to reshape ...... strangely enough though they can be dented relatively easily :(

    Done a good job on it :D;)
