New Bumper Finishing ?

New Bumper Finishing

I replaced the bumper on my 99 Honda. I wanted to ask for direction on how to refiniish it? It is plastic, so I can imagine it being quite different from metal fenders etc. Can someone give me a step by step as well as what type of materials are needed?

Go to an automotive paint store and they will set you up with everything you need. There is a 'flex' additive that is supposed to be added to the paint when painting bumpers and other non rigid automotive surfaces - it's not cheap

Basically you sand and clean the bumper, prime [if needed], wet sand and then spray on the proper coating [s] - usually a color coat and then a clear coat.

Also, to make it look OEM, you are going to need a paint booth and a spray gun.

How did you plan on applying the paint?
