Painting and repainting flexible bumper covers

Modern cars come with flexible plastic bumper covers that hide and streamline the actual mechanical parts beneath them. Because these covers can flex, an adhesion promoter is needed to keep paint from cracking and flaking off. In this video, we show you how to prepare the bumper cover for paint on a Mitsubishi. Then, we show you how to properly apply the adhesion promoter to give your primer coat the “bite” it needs to stay put. Finally, we show you how to paint and blend in your basecoat and clear coats for a professional looking result.
