    Question Ceta bumper mod... Flat, gloss or ?

    I was just wondering what the preferred shade is for the ceta rear bumper mod? Thinking about doing it to mine. My 98 is sport gold met.

    Also, are you guys using spray can stuff or what? How are they holding up? I used a krylon plasticote paint on my 80 TA for my tail light restoration and it held up perfect for the past several years.

    Collector's Edition Trans Am, you know the yellow ones with the flat back bumper. OP I would do flat black. I think it would loom weird gloss black if it was the only thing gloss black.

    The CETA stands for the 02 collectors edition TA. The rear bumper on them has black paint.

    Here are some pics. Mine is the all gold one while the other two are off the Internet.

    Actually it looks really good gloss black. I would do that.

    Whatever the third pic is? I like that one, although it looks like he used a gloss or semi-gloss?..

    Ceta

    My Original CETA is on the flat side of black. If it was house latex it would be egg shell finish. Alot of jap cars have this black finish in the same area, its to hide exhaust soot.

    The Ford Contour SVT also had that panel an egg shell black. Didnt know it was to hide exhaust soot though. Never had that problem with mine.
