Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any vendors that sell painted M-Tech rear bumpers? Parkhurst Motorsports used to advertise them in the vendor section but it seems like they've disappeared. Any insight would be appreciated.

Most vendors don't because of the potential damage that can occur to the paint when shipping. I would buy an unpainted bumper and have a local shop you trust paint it for you

Yea not a good idea to sell large painted parts.

As others have said, it would be so easy to damage during shipping. Additionally, the paint would be noticeably different from yours. A body shop would blend it in with the rest of your car to give it a more natural appearance.

Also was considering them and read this...

BTW, I am of the understanding from a member that purchased - that the Parkhurst bumpers are NOT new, they are reconditioned OEM, & the prepaint service is not that good of quality - he had to repaint.

There's a reason they are so cheap...
