OEM bumper paint?

Due to an epic failure of depth perception on my part yesterday, one of the corners of my front bumper got introduced to a pillar in a parking deck. The milkjug took most of the hit, which I used as a reason to finally order a set of Mopar flush end caps, but the edge of the bumper itself also got scraped up. I want to do something ASAP to prevent it from rusting, but I also want to make sure that whatever I do ends up looking like the rest of the bumper. I haven't had much luck searching for a specific product that will make that happen, what should I be looking for?

The closest you'll find will be a semi-gloss black from Krylon or Rustoleum. Krylon tends to go on better with less chance of running.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I used Krylon Rust Tough Semi Flat on my OEM bumpers and it's a nice match.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot! If I screw it up, well, I'd been wanting an ARB bumper since I got my XJ more than a decade ago...
