Wow '99 front bumpers are that cheap now??

Just give it to a paint guy. Get ahold of steve. His brother does paint and is d@mn good.
He can color match it to your car and be done with it.
Plug and Play Flash Ecus, why use a harness when you can just Plug and Play?!
2 year Warranty on all ECUs.
$50.00 of every Plug and Play Flash Ecu sale goes to Greg for more software goodness.
