I am concerned about trying to repaint/replace the front bumper as I am not confident the body shop can get it to perfectly match the rest of the body. The OCD in me would have a problem with that. Instead, I've been thinking about two alternatives:

-- I was thinking about marking off with tape the lower portion that covers the rash, and spray painting the lower portion flat black, perhaps with a truck bed liner that won't show future scrapes or rock dings, and is easy to touch up.

-- My first choice, however, would be a plastic or fiberglass cover that fits over the lower portion of the bumper, but I have not been able to find any. If anyone can refer me to something like this, TIA.

Thoughts on any solution welcome. And yes, I know it looks like shit, but car has not been washed, and there is a lot of grass clippings, etc. on it.
I'll go to a local auto paint shop and have 'em mix you your paint code in a spray can.. a little bit of Bondo and sanding to DIY. If it fails, then just bring it to a body shop.
