New tails look good Mike

Seen the stock ones give grief when they get old.

Bought about 160$ in parts at local pull it.

Purchased a front bumper cover, a radiator support, tire well liner, and the oil pan for my D20 as the one I have leaks slightly around the oil drain plug, also bought my driver side mirror and adjuster.

Pulled the oil pan off a D20 ZX4 automatic. Seen why it was in the junk yard, one of the arms that push pistons had shattered so ill be fishing out those pieces from the oil pan and cleaning it really good before installing it.

The bumper cover looks great but the paint is peeling.
Radiar support is in great shape.
So is the driver side mirror.

I want a temporarily fix that paint peel so ill remove the paint thats flaking and sand the edges. Whay should I spray on for temp fix?
