O.k great.....it's a done deal! Just a tad cheaper than an original too!!! Will P.M you Bob....Cheers guys...And one other thing.....I was originally goin to just get the bumper and extension painted (C2) and then refit them myself to the car but i'm now thinking they'll have to be 'blended' with the existing paint which is'nt too bad really for it's age.....Any ideas???

Well, seeing as you are getting bumper painted at the same time, it shouldnt be a problem. If the bumper is already painted, then the lip should match as all the paint is new.

Just make sure you do a full trial fit of the lip to the bumper before painting.

Umm sorry ther Arm79 but the bumber is back to basecoat atmo as it's required some welding and repair and the mould was damaged....So ye was wondering about match the new paint for the bumper into the original on the car....Or just paint them seperate? Would prefer just painting seperate as i can just fit it all up afetr getting the bumper painted professionally?

I think what he meant was match the colours. The parts should always be painted separately.
Cheers, Bob

Yes Bob correct....Prob with re-painting panels is the "original" paint is weathered at least a little so then the 'new' painted panels stand out more which can make a repair job easier to pick or just not look right....That's why 'blending' is done to minimise this effect!
