what I am try to ask is. I painted my front lower bumper (valance) to color match my truck, and the paint keeps peeling off. I don't want to have to sand down and repaint every week. Is there anyone out there that could give any suggestions?

Flex additive and proper surface prep. You can't paint over the factory surface without roughing it up for proper adhesion.

You probably can find a few youtube videos on the subject of painting plastic bumpers/etc fairly easily.

Are you trying to rattle can this?

Strip it down to bare plastic, use a grey scotchbrite pad, Ajax powdered bleach, a little bit of degreaser(spraynine, purple power or the like) , and water to scuff and clean the bare plastic. Clean thoroughly with water, and dry.

Clean with isopropyl alcohol. Spray with adhesion promoter(IMPORTANT!). Seal, and paint.

If you follow that procedure it'll last as long as the rest of the truck.
