Im located in the New Haven area of CT. Im about an hour and a half from the city. I assume you want the plastic smoothed out and then painted, correct? You dont want to paint over the textured surface

Do you have any before and after pictures??? I also live in NYC and would be interested to see how that turns out. You are not that far from us.

Re: painted plastics on a 2011 laredo x

That would work I guess.....I have never seen the plastic done up. I just wanted to get an idea of what it would look like.

Re: painted plastics on a 2011 laredo x

I am assuming the front area around the fogs is what you worked on. I can't really tell on the lower rear bumper.......the shade is making it difficult. It does look good though. If you can, pm me prices.
