Default Paint repair

Hey everyone. I am a new member over here but have been on s2ki for years (pghs2kid). I have this posted over there as well but thought id reach out to this community and share this.
I purchased my current s2000 a little over a year ago now. For Christmas my girlfriend got me a OEM front lip. After waiting around for 10 months I finally decided to paint it Also when I purchased the car the rear bumper was missing clear coat only on the drivers side (odd) but figured this would be a good time to repair that too!

I purchased the paint from here

What I purchased was 2 cans of base coat (sebring silver)
2 cans of primer
2 cans of clearcoat
and a sandpaper package with wet sandpaper

The front lip went really well and not difficult at all.
The rear bumper I found to be pretty tricky. I sanded everything down, primed, sanded, painted, cleared, wetsanded, and buffed.
I think it turned out very well for not doing this very often!

I have a few rust spots i'd like to tackle next I will post when I do!

All in all with the paints available at the website I linked to it saves a ton of money to do it yourself. The rust repair im more skeptical on taking on myself, but the bumpers being plastic I wasn't very worried if I would have messed up
