Sanding/Repainting Bumpers

I'm thinking of buying used svt bumpers and skirts for my zx5, but they are silver and my car is black so obviously they'll need to be sanded and repainted. My question is, How much of a pain in the ass is it to sand and repaint bumpers? I've done quite a bit of sanding and painting in the past, but never on a car. Will it be too much of a hassle to do it myself?

Also, has anyone had any trouble with swapping out svt bumpers with standard zx5/zx3 models? And how much should I offer someone for all 4 bumper/skirt pieces that are in fair-good condition? Thanks.
