    Where are most of you guys taping off your rear bumper when doing the CETA mod?

    Do you paint black right into the indentation or do you leave the indent body color?

    Ya, a close up pic of where the black ends in the indentation would be great if you could.

    I think for the show it would look better gloss but it prob looks cleaner for a longer time in flat.

    Actually I've had mine done for over 2 yrs and looks same as when I painted it. I used SEM Trim Black(buy it at any auto paint supplier) leaves a semi gloss finish so it leaves a smoother finish than flat but isn't as shiny as it would be if you did a base coat/ clear coat on it. Looks like factory. I have pics in the write up in the Firedbird section
