Re: Bumper colour.

I also thought about painting them same colour as the car. It's up to you, of course, personally I feel that the Capri doesn't look quite right with body coloured bumpers. Probably because the overriders and end caps would still be black. I'd stick with satin black as suggested by the others. Andrew.

Re: Rattle Can Paint, Recommended Suppliers?

If you want a better result than the one you'll get with aerosols, you could try a HVLP spray gun, like this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Electric-Mains-Handheld-Painter-Suitable/dp/B01MTQEVX7 Neil (Sheff) has used one with amazing results: http://www.fordcapriforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5...
