Re: Merc. Milan Bumper cover

I would say you can do it either way, and both have pros and cons. If you take the bumper cover off, you can focus more on getting the paint smooth and you won't have to worry about overspray. However, taking it off is a somewhat tricky operation. You have to be very delicate with it or the cover could bend or crack. If you leave it on, you won't have to worry so much about damaging the bumper cover, but you will have mask the surrounding area heavily and precisely, which can be a pretty tedious job.
Basically, are you better at handling fragile items without damaging them, or masking surrounding parts to protect them from overspray? Whichever you find easier is the way to go.
