Well I am about to get my bumper painted soon.
What kind of black is similar to brilliant black?
is it just a normal black?

I think it's just normal generic black. No flake, no pearl, no nothin.

I need to paint my bumpers too [rolleyes]

go to a local paint supplier and see if they can mix you your OEM color in an aerosol can. Most places it costs about 20-25 bucks. Its well worth it.

You can get oem paint by the pint or quart and have it put into cans. They have a fan nozzle and actually cover pretty decently. I've done it on a couple of my friends' cars and it comes out with decent results, granted you take your time, use a good clear coat, and colorsand.
