Default Is it possible to replace the whole hood and front bumper with original colors?


Do you know if Toyota provides a front hood and front bumper with
the original colors for 2003 Camry LE. In other words, the hood and
the bumper would be just installed without any need for any paint
job. I am just fed up with the lack of professional painting skills in
the body shops at local Toyota dealerships. I just want them to
install the parts.

No they don't come prepainted --- only the mirrors do. So
don't go to a Toyota body shop. Find a custom shop that is
recommended --- they can easily get OEM parts and match the
paint. No reason you have to go to Toyota owned one.

Where are you located? I had the front third of my Camry replaced (and
repainted) a couple of years ago at Thompson Toyota in Doylestown, Pa.
this is about 40 miles north of Philadelphia.

The results were, and remain, an absolutely perfect match with the rest
of the car.

Just my experience.
