    See, I told you so lol.

    At first, the clearcoats started to come off in small speckle. As you can see, I removed about 50% of the bumper's top coat (the darker paint in my previous pics) by myself. I literally tried almost everything in order to remove only the topcoat w/ tape adhesives, razor blades, air compressor, etc. Then, I got a minor hit 'n run and it cracked the bumper so I gave it up about 1 year ago lol.

    Good thing about this upgrade is that I get to keep my original bumper for moding it w/o her face being bare naked while she gets her face surgery. ;)

    Feels nice to take a closer look of her face. Even a pic like this was too close to show, before her old face lol.

    First time ever to show her outdated eye w/ a closer look lol.

    Nice work, Richard. I wouldn't have noticed that unless you pointed it out. Good to see perfection in progress :)
