a little change (yet related) topic; I am thinking about painting my bumpers with lime green plasti dip (yes they have it) verses body paint as I think it would be more durable. I am thinking it might make them almost look like rubber bumpers to a degree as well (not that I am after that look per se, but just saying).

Thoughts, comments?

Plasti-dip is a temporary remove-able paint.  Peels off like tape.  I wouldn't recommend it for bumpers.  :2cents:  R/T

Could you use a POR product as a base and then topcoat?   The standard POR product I've used seemed like plastic when it dried.

I plastidipped my chrome bumpers, just whiped them down with acetone first, did not scuff the chrome, sprayed them, been like that for more than 6 months, no issues

The new "flex" spray paint is temporary, however I believe plasti dip is designed to be more durable (it is marketed to dip tools in). Not arguing but I have used the black version for battery boxes and other places and never thought it was temporary or not durable.

My bumpers are ground down (removed the shiny chrome) and then primed with 2K, then primed with poly surfacer (seemed like a good idea at the time). I guess I can try it and if I don't like it, I can strip them and repaint them.

Time for an update.

Got all of the poly blocked out, shot the last of it on the problem areas and will reblock those areas out today. Hopefully I can shoot the 2K today or tomorrow. I am waiting on 2 gallons of TCP Global paint which I should have next week, then I will shoot the sealer and the paint. It is moving a little slow due to weather and availably of components (should have planned better). I would post some pictures but there isn't much to show, when I get the 2K on I will post a pic.

Update: Got the car blocked out and today shot high build 2K urethane primer on it. I was having some issues with the gun which I am not impressed with (HF "professional" gun). It seemed to get better but still not great. It may have been too small of a tip (1.4) because once I reduced it a little it seemed to flow much better. I will now block it out with 220 and then 320, then on to sealer and then paint.

Believe me, I have repeatedly. I think it is good.

I am sanding the high build 2K now, very delicate stuff it would appear.
