MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Body Color Rubber Bumpers?

Yeah, I know this isn't a tech question, but...

I've looked through the archives & searched the web for pictures of a rubber bumpered midget with the bumpers painted body color...haven't found any thing yet.

I plan to have my car re-sprayed in the next few months & thought about having the black bumpers sprayed body color...just not sure what it would look like.

Has anybody seen this done?

Any photos or links I could check out?

Any help is appreciated!

Dave :)

Saw a Burgundy 1975 in my area recently (ad deleted, can't find pic, sorry) with the blubbers painted the color of the body. Frankly it wasn't pretty IMO.

If I can find the pic I'll post it here.

Dave, I've seen a few done like this, some look superb, others just bloody awfull....

Maybe you could take a picture of yours and then play on Photoshop (or similar) to see what it may look like....
