Gonna give them a try. I am also having my Cobra R rear spoiler painted at the same time for an additional $200. Taking it in next week. Will update here once I get everything back.

DO NOT USE THIS SHOP!! Absolute garbage. I had them do one of these Cobra bumpers for me along with a Cobra R spoiler. 1) When I went to pick up the cover and spoiler, the cover did not have the wheel arches painted. They said no problem, we'll repaint. Took home the spoiler, It sat in my garage for about a week. When I brought it out to install it, the paint was already bubbling. The spoiler was painted red when I brought it in. I asked if there was any prep that he wanted done to it before painting silver. Nope, we'll take care of everything. When I started taking the paint off that they applied, it would just peel off. If they did any prep at all it was a very bad job. Took the spoiler back when I went to pick up the "repainted" cover. Got 50% of my money back on the spoiler. Oh well. Took me hours to strip this back to a condition that could properly repainted.

2) Fast forward a few weeks. Installing the cover now. Guess what? I caught an inside edge of the cover grill opening and the paint is literally peeling off in sheets. Absolutely no adhesion.

Save your money and pay a little more. This shop is definitely not interested in doing things right.

to be realistic, their pricing kind of tells you what they're already about.

a painted bumper for $350, i know what kind of quality it's going to be.
