    after looking at the pic again i think you should do what gap141070 said and do the inserts on the bumpers all round then it will look smart and stand out

    Go for it....just don't forget to post a pic!

    Btw, if it's just primer would you clear lac them or get a signal yellow gloss? Naked primer will dirty very quickly.
