Tape off the area you want to spray, cover up everywhere else you don't want to spray and then scuff up the area to be sprayed. I believe I used 150 grit sand paper. Make sure you scuff every square inch. 98% of the job is in the prep, spraying is a piece of cake. Once you are done scuffing an air hose is your best friend to blow all of the dust away. A quick wipe down with a damp CLEAN rag, a bit of dry time and you are ready to spray.

Do not try to spray it on thick in one coat. Multiple coats for thickness are better than trying to do it with one coat. Practice first on a piece of cardboard to get the distance of the gun to the surface being sprayed to get the "roughness" you want. Also, figure out the air pressure that will work for what you want.

This is really easy, just remember the better your prep the better the results will be. Mine has been on for over four years now (I think) and it still looks great without any peeling or chipping.

I redid all my trim using rustoleum's bumper spray.

Cleaned it first then i used Dupli's clear adhesive promoter for plastic, 2 coats.

Sprayed it over with the Trim and Bumper spray paint and it looks like it's brand new. Unlike having to use trim restoring creams.

I took mine off was doing a full body paint job anyways and the bumper did have rust in where the plastic and bumper sits ( dirt - water = mud = mud takes longer to dry out = rust

I sandblasted the bumper and used a rust acid spray for any pinholes



As for the plastic I used a automotive Trim paint and clear which i also used on the door handles and Mirrors and roof rack and front bumper They all came out better then factory ..Make sure you use a Red 3M scratch pad and scuff the part before painting and clean it too

good advice, i quickly did mine and its starting to show, i will have to pick up the 3m red scratch pad probably when it starts getting warmer out, which is a little bit away LOL
