Anyone get their front bumper Resprayed?

I'm looking to get a respray on my front bumper, wondering how much it will cost, and who to go to.

Should I just take it to MAC? They have a great reputation.

MAC will certainly provide the BEST quality of work hands down, however they come at a very steep price!

I had mine resprayed plus 4 holes filled from a license plate holder... it was $500 at a local shop with a good reputation. Turned out perfect. I had a lot of scrapes underneath that were smoothed out.

I recently got my front and rear bumpers resprayed along with my front lip. I got it done at Motorcepts, and I don't have a problem with it at all.


It really depends on your choice, there are a lot of good sponsors on this forum, and they vary in location.

Chris, are you bananas? You are going to either Demitrios at Euro Body or Proformance. They are personal buds and certified coach builders of the East Coast.

it really comes out to where you are located and if you are willing to drive. (ie, motorcepts in queens, MAC in long island, etc.)

Has anyone got their hood resprayed? It seems that mine already has a bunch of stone chips.
