Thread: Art Bumper
06-18-2011, 11:53 AM #1
I just repainted my 2006's front bumper. While my grille is nice and unique, I felt the truck could use a bit more "custom" up front.
You've probably seen this done in Sharpie Marker, on a Lamborghini Gallardo. This however, is done in nice black enamel, and won't immediately fade and look crummy.
Citing various influences on my psyche,
I just randomly drew stuff in.
Once I'd got it all...
filled in, I went over it with
a nice thick coat of clear enamel to protect it.
The finished Art Bumper. In a few weeks, I'll wet-sand it, apply another coat of clear, and polish it out to a high shine.

I used to have a 2007 mitsu Eclipse and I did the dash similar to that. It was done with metallic silver sharpie and ALOT of time.
I've considered doing this to a few pieces on my truck I just haven't completely convinced myself.
Great job on your bumper though! Very Unique!
