Sorry Nova 1958...I get get the pictures to come up on my computer, the bumper does look sand blasted, if you want to paint the rear bumper, run a DA over the bumper with 80 grit, if there are any dents, work the out as best you can and fill those areas (it may not be a bad idea to give the whole bumper a skim coat and block it straight). If you use a sandable epoxy primer, prime and block the the primer with a minimum of 400 grit paper and paint. If your not using a sandable epoxy, give it a coat of any rust preventative product like and etch primer, then 2K high build, again, block with 400 grit paper and paint.

If I'm right you shouldn't be required to loosen the bumper to remove the tail light assembly...As I mentioned, the pictures aren't coming up on my computer so it's hard for me to tell.
