I have an L reg AX, the bodywork is in pretty good condition, the only thing that lets it down is the faded pink bumpers (I’m guessing I’m not alone with this).

I’m thinking about buying new front and back bumpers and painting them to match the car. Is this something that is easy for a novice to do? What is involved in fitting the bumpers? Is it easy to get paint to match?

well i have same on my ax gt there faded but this is common on the ax i heard that you could try and use a buffer on them with a bit of the colour polish stuff and that should bring it back up just a quick re spray its nuthink hard am 16 and i am in the middle of doing it plus getting my hands on twins webbers 45 :rolleyes:

 

hope this helps

dont judge me by my age i have worked on cars and watch over the shoulder from age of 8 and my uncle had an ax gt for his first car he had same problems and he did the same things that are listed and he got it back up. thats where i got these ideas
