Hi there.

I can't answer whether the bumpers are interchangeable, but regarding painting the textured trim to a gloss finish?

It is possible, but a fair degree of work, as the textured surface will need sanding back to a completely smooth surface, before the prime/basecoat/clearcoat paint process.

This is necessary, as the ripples on the surface will otherwise prevent a glossy finish.

Hope that helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
