Painting question

I need to replace the front bumper on my sister's white Tracer. I can't find a white one so I will have to make do.

If I do it myself, sand, prime and paint with a spray can paint how long might it last? Or should I mount it and have her take it to a body shop and pay them?

Thanks!

Chuck

I don't know how good of a job you can do with spray cans. I take it you don't have access to a cup gun and air compressor.

It is always best to add the flex additive to the paint when painting surfaces like the bumper. Without the flex additive the paint will get little cracks in it sooner or later.

A lot depends on how much you or your sister want to spend
