Default Bumper Color

So I now have my bare metal bumper and winch on the way.

Bumper


I now have to make decision as to color/paint selection.

The bumper will be bare metal upon arrival. Didnt want powder coat as nothing else is coated.
The option I am considering are;

a. Paint using color match shadow greay and maintain orig scheme.

b. Spray Using undercoat. Then paint color match.

c. Spray using just underocoat. If I do this I also want to spray all of the grey, rear bumper, and roll bar.


Tried doing this on pc but cant figure out how...
