Honestly, I got terrific results from Krylon Semi Gloss on my bumpers and rockers. It has a good-looking powdercoat-like finish and looks extremely non-rattlecan-like.

Learn how to spray paint, then paint wahtever you want painted. If you know what you are doing, you can get a really nice finish with spray paint.

Yeah that's what I was going to do but i'd rather give the money to a member. But it looks like I'll be going to one today if they're open.
