ideas for body before paint

I'm beginning to realize that I need cosmetics, (every frikkin day) and I figured I'd put it to yall. wha would you do, knowing you didn't want tospend an ***-load of $, and you knew you needed new paint all around, and had a dicked up (however minute) front and rear bumper cover? I've decided to keep laser red. What do yall think for the bumper covers? Pics would be good as well...

If you can find someone who knows how to do it and find the right kit where the door actually pops when you press the button.

Most people who I've seen do it weld on some metal on and then slap some bondo over it and call it done. They don't account for the metal shrinking and they don't stretch it back out and spend the time on it.

You don't find out that if it's good or not until you've had the work done.
