Don't let Cinqmeister hear you call them ugly. I made that mistake before. He takes it quite personal;):p:D

I did my bumpers myself, im no expert but:
- I smoothed the bumpers down a bit using medium sandpaper
- a coat of plastic primer
- fine sandpaper to smooth the primer (till it was as smooth as a babys bottom, lol)
- Some coats of FIAT Verde Stelvio (i.e. Green)
- Some coats of Halfords lacquer

The result was very good, but not amazing, definatly worth it tho.

I just used my garage and a £9.99 workmans table from Wickes to rest the bumper on (NEVER HAVE STUFF YOUR PAINTING ON THE FLOOR!, TRUST ME)

I did the same as smgs but smoothed the medium sanding with a finer grade ( I used P240 initially and then P600) and P600 on the Primer before putting on the paint and then P1200 after Paint before Lacquer

Heres the front finished!:
