The previous owner of this car had hauled some stuff in the back and used the back bumper as a sliding rack or something...who knows what it was used for. Needless to say, it looked pretty bad.

Not sure I like the black but guess it was the easiest fix to the problem.
I see your point about trying to match the silver. I guess black was tbe better way to go without paying an arm and a leg at a body shop.
