You'll never get it to match by getting it at a paint store. like touch up paint it's not the same because it is blended exactly right and clear coated. Body shops and dealers are the ones to do the exact matches.

I just had a rear bumper done. I got it used and did the body work and a local shop painted it and it matches to the T! He did the tailgate too and it came out great

It cost me 300 for them to be painted. I have my old bumper, has alot of rust but if you have the bodywork experience it is better than buying a new one. I'm gonna toss it but if you want it, it's all yours

Yeah, It's a steel bumper, you can use a paint and rust stripper and then wetsand it, then prime it. It's alot of work but beats paying 400 for a new one. Before I got the new one I went everywhere to find one and I found 2 but they were all rotted. For some reason the paintable bumpers rot alot quicker
