coating bumpers in bed liner

Im staring to coat both front and rear bumper of my truck with bed liner. im currently sanding it down and primering the rear bumper then going to coat it with duplicolor spray on bed liner. for the front ill do it the same way but bought some krylon semi flat black for the lower valance. i think the truck is going to look ten times better with the black bumpers, and while im doing it im probably going to paint the grill black as well. any tips or input would be appreciated.

a few other members have done it with good results but i believe they may have been done professionally ... i have line-xed tow hooks and they look great

Just make sure you sand it down really good... Mine only started chipping after about 3-4 months and clean it off good after you sand it...

No, it sticks fine to the plastic... I put 2 cans on the front valance and 1 can on each flare when I did it.

A couple years ago a memeber had coated the XLT fender flairs and front valance in line-x, it looked pretty sweet.

These pics might help:

no the front valence is already textured so depending of the paint match i might be doing the valence with some krylon paint and just do the bumpers withthe bed liner. i got the back done and im getting ready to do the front now.
