..that I installed my front bumper before it was painted?

The whole car is going to the body shop anyway to have a bunch of stuff done so I figured I would just fit the bumper to my IC before I had brand new paint on it. Now I'm worried about over spray on my IC and possibly not being able to paint the edges along the fender/headlights.

Are these legit problems or am I stressing over nothing?

is the bodyshop painting the whole car? if your worried you could always ask them to take the bumper off to paint it

If they don't pull the bumper cover to paint it, the paint won't be that high of quality, and the shop isn't doing their job right. (assuming you're not getting the budget paint from Maaco)

you have to remove the IC piping before you can take the rebar bolts out... I'm hoping they can just stuff some paper behind it. It is just the front bumper that theyre painting btw... oh yeah and the side skirts and rear quarter but still..

Why not just remove it, its only 2 bolts?
