Icon7 painting front grille and bumper plastic

The other day I used Rustoleum brand rattle can flat black paint to repaint the front grille on the 2003. This is the combined primer/finish color paint Rustoleum makes. Also used it to paint the worn plastic beneath the chrome of the front bumper. It went on well, only had two spots with a sag, which was my fault for loading up the surface. Waiting 30 minutes and hit it with some 150 grit and the sag smoothed right out. Repainted and it came out smooth and even in color tone. Finished at midnight then rolled it out of the garage. Started raining in the early a.m., but the paint stayed in place. The flat black is an attractive color that covers well. Looks brand new.
