    Front bumper for 94x?

    I think going to the dealer is much cheaper than going through FPN...they're prices are TERRIBLE. I can honestly get parts for my BMW cheaper than that.

    96 Explorer-Blows fuse when shifted into reverse

    Well you put it in reverse and you blow the fuse for the reverse lights...sounds to me like you've got something grounding out somewhere in that circuit...probally with the reverse lights. Check all wiring and check for water in your taillights/reverse lights.

    Help with Paint

    I just did the inner part of my 94's grille. I used the DupliColor Trim Paint (black of course), but first I cleaned and primed it, then painted, then glued plastic mesh behind it. I taped off the outer chrome part, and everything inside is painted with the black. Looks AMAZING....I'll try to...
