    What do I need to fix this DIY style.

    Hey all I have quite a few stone chips on my front bumper and don't want to get it professionally sprayed as I will be selling it next month. So just wondering what sort of job I could do on this

    http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs123&d=08045&...medium_366.jpg

    using products from paints4u etc. Its midnight black and as long as it looks half blended in i'm not fussed.

    Thanks

    Blimey that's a fair few stone chips, if i was you, then i would get it resprayed professionaly, because you'd proberly have to respray the whole bumper. It's not really worth the hastle with cans.
    But that's my opinion, if you feel confident with doing it, then go for it.

    you would need a load of prep to get that even close to ready for painting, took me a while flattening and then spraying my bumper with high build primer before it was ready for paint

    jesus when ya said sone schips and then saw the pics thought you should have put boulder chips lol, thats hell of alot. I really doubt you would be able to sort that out without a respray or looking for a cheap bumper as im not sure how much a respray would cost? anyone got any ideas for a whole bumper respray?
