Dude, I did mine without removing the bumper and it turned out awesome! I am pretty picky so that is saying something. You can mask and drape to cover the rest of your rig and off you go. I probably spent an hour prepping and another 4 hours painting. I take my time in between coats so it dries really well.

I finally removed the drapes and tape at the end of the day and it really turned out well. I removed my front bumper to do the front wings but decided to try to do the rear without removing it. I ended up going back and doing the front over, exactly like I did the rear because I liked it so much.

Hope that helps you. Just be patient!

no need for removal just a lot more work, i just masked mine off and shot them with the primer and paint. and then when they needed redone, i didn't even mask them and you could not tell i didn't. to each his own, but no need to turn it into a lot more work for the same result..:bandit:
