bumper refurbishing

The bumpers were fairly dirty but I also discovered that they had been painted at some point. I cleaned them a few times using SuperClean and then followed up with lacquer thinner. This left the bumpers with a nice matte black look. The backing was media blasted by alternative blasters along with the car. I then had the brackets and fittings powder coated. Also took a picture of the instrument cluster in place and running.

wheels repaired and powder coated

I had the wheels repaired for curb rash and had them powder coated. The new tires are Michelin Primacy 195s. It was fairly expensive to have this done, but at this point it seemed like the right thing to do. Pictures show before and after.
