Gouged / Scuffed rear bumper cheap fix

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.

So, on a nice sunny weekend and a can of standard gloss black auto paint from Autozone, some paint tape, sand paper, and filler, I spent about a half hour of work, a couple of hours of drying time, and the results are in these pics:

note: the mirrors were also done in this fashion...

well, it doesn't help that the grainy pics doesn't do it justice really.

I was thinking about a gunmetal color but then decided on black to go good against the back window. Anything closer to a silver would have looked like I "tried" to match the color but didn't quite make it.
Well lucky enough it wasn't cracked plastic - just deep gouges.

And the arm / leg bit was what I was avoiding while trying to repair something that just irked me. I think I got OCD on body dings.

I really think Honda should have made a champaigne gold insight....
