Looking Good!! Did you rattle can it or use a spray gun? Did you wet sand it after?

I have a 2012 JKU Bright White Sahara and thinking about painting mine Bright White to replace the Gray that they come with.

Oh ok. I am going to buy a smaller spray gun and try and do mine myself. If it ends up looking bad, I got a buddy who is a Paint Tech and he said he would do it for a steak and a few cold ones...

I never did understand why they didn't just body match those from the factory instead of using Gray.

I agree..The ARCTIC actually did not come with the bumper covers so I picked a set up from a forum member here and then had them painted...

They match my silver paint perfectly and I really like the look.
Sorry for the close up. This photo was taken for another thread but you can see my bumper cover is silver, not gray. I would not hesitate for a minute to paint it to match my body color if it was other than silver.
