    Buying pre painted parts.

    I need to replace my hood and MTech II front grill. I see there are some parts houses that will sell you pre painted parts.
    Found a few places that will paint my hood A07 Mystic Blue and ship it to me. Haven't found anyone to sell me a pre painted MTech II grill.
    Anyone have any experiences or recommendations on a vendor?
    Did some searching but couldn't find any threads. I am a rookie.
    Bought the car from a former member and friend of mine. It was damaged in shipment.

    On a paint vendor. Or a bumper vendor?

    Only bumper covers I found were all unpainted. I would have a local shop do the hood and bumper at same time and paint match the car.

    You don't really want a pre-painted hood. It likely won't be an exact match for the rest of your car due to how the rest of the paint may have faded throughout the years. You should get it properly color-matched at a body shop.

    Also, the grille isn't a painted piece from the factory, which is probably why you won't find a pre-painted one anywhere. It's just black plastic.
