Painting and body parts / 2 Questions

I have an '87 325i........
2 Questions...


1) Im upgrading from the big diving board bumpers to the shorter sporty ones.
Does anyone have or know where I can get the rear bumper and also a rear apron?


2) I want to paint my car silver (originally gray) What does it normally cost to paint this car?....I don't have a lot of funds right now, but I also don't want a cheap job done. Should I buy my own paint?

well for 2) if you get your own paint and do it yourself it's more rewarding in the end knowing that you did it yourself but at the same time it's a pain in the ass and takes forever. i repainted my 84 318i and it took so long. so really it's just a matter of if you wanna put time into it or money
