Capri bumpers

Postby LONGC16 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 8:34 pm

Hi all. My new 4year will ld bumpers are in a state. I got them powder blasted when I bought them by they are surface corroded. I'm going to have painted with better protective coating.

What color are the bumpers? What kind of black?

Hi,
The original finish was satin black.

Satin black, anything else just doesn't seem to look quite right (probably because it isn't!)
