Okay I voted for #4.

Several reasons. Your front bumper other than the paint is fine, why replace it when you don't "have" to? I am mine, even though I don't have to, but thats because it is still damaged some what.

I did not vote for the Audio package because even though it may win you a magazine, how practical is it really? Audio mods are normally my first mod on all my vehicles. But I am practical with the mods, I add some bass and audio clarity without being over powered. I have a 10" Subthumb stealth box and that's plenty, even too much at times. With your idea, I think you add a lot of bass and weight just to win a magazine but in the long run what does it net you? I think long term option 4 is the best all around, it complements your current mods and gives you a little more show with all that go!

OH, hell. Mine looked sand blasted. The painter was only planning on wet sanding and painting. When me and Chris got there the next day he'd taken it down to the plastic and started over. He said the PLASTIC was pitted.

I still say go with package #4.

You should really wait 60 to 90 days after it's painted to put a clear bra on...

The paint used at the paint shop isn't like factory paint. The new paint will need to cure.

The roads up here aren't bad, and I make sure I stay way back if I have to follow trucks.

I like the bumper too. Still waiting on SummoneR to get his so I can look at it in person.

I'm planning on painting the car and not driving it much until the paint is cured. The clear bra wasn't going on immediately following paint.

I don't think there will be a package 5. Of the suggestions I've received, I don't have a man cave to put money into. I can't get paint and a full audio system since both are a majority of the budget alone, and nothing else has really been suggested.

I was driving to SEMA that night, so I taped up the car to avoid rock chips on the 9.5 hour drive from SF to Las Vegas.
