    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.

    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.

    Looks great. I like the way you used the pic to cover your license plate. :)
    Are your flames still there? Hard to tell from the one pic of the hood.

    I do like the grill. The artwork is unique. I wish I had some of your talent in the paint department.

    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!
