Is this the best way to go for colormatching?

I am going to colormatch my bumper cap and lower valance soon, and the painter I chose said it would be wise to buy those pieces paintable instead of having the shop sand my textured pieces. He didn't say how much extra it would be but he highly recommended it, so I'm guessing it would've been the better bet. It's going to cost me about $250 to buy those paintable pieces, plus $300 or so to get it painted. Should I go ahead and buy the pieces? What did some of you guys do? Thanks for any help.

your painter is still gonna have to smooth the valance, they dont make a paintable pre-smooth one like the upper bumper cap.

Getting your plastics painted is not going to be cheap anyway. It takes alot of prep work just like said before. You could take a day on the weekend and do all the work yourself if you wanted. Just sand, prime, and sand some more. Get it to a good point and then take it to the painter to finish up.:imo
