New Bumper Repaint Job Video

Here are some instructions on how a plastic bumper should be painted from start to finish. The bumper in this video belongs to a Mitsubishi, and it was improperly painted and prepped by a typical local body shop. Notice the lack of adherence of the paint which, in time, ended up flaking off.
