Re: bumper strips??

Best bet i think would be scrappies, because most are front or rear impact so i'm sure u'll find one from each door because i'm pretty certain ones from sx etc will fit right on.

Re: bumper strips??

they are screwed on with tiny screws. Hard to get off without removing the bumper. I sprayed mine while still on the car. If you can get them off, you can replace them with new ones if you're willing to pay Fiat a lot of money, or you can spray them. I'd advise the latter

Re: bumper strips??

did you just newspaper off the rest of the bumper when you sparyed it?? how many coats did you give it?? did it require a special type of spray to apply it to the strips??

Yeah, newspapers where the answer. Sanded them down to get rid of the pink, primered about 4 coats. Sanded down with fine wet&dry (p600), then the paint colour layer. I gave that about 3 coats. Then ultra thin paper (P1500) and then a couple of layers of laquer. The front ornamental gasket is a hard one because you need to put something to protect the rad from gettin painted!lol

there u go, simple as that!

even tho i didnt use any primer and only did 2 coats of paint... but hey i was kinda in a rush!

and if u want to do the ornamental gasket then it can b undone by 6 or so tiny bolts behind it, if u have time to take the bumper off that is!
