I'd use a professional paint degreaser from a bodyshop.



I'd grab a box of 6 cans. Never know how many you'll use. I used 5 cans of duplicolor bedliner on my flares, valence, and metal bumper.

For my valance and grille I only used about 1 1/2. So I'd be safe and go with 3. 4 at most. When it comes to Krylon, I just clean the plastic really well with dish soap and HOT water and a medium bristle brush. Then 5-6 light coats and an hour or two, or three LOL later you have some nicely painted trim.

Youll be good with 4 cans. For cleaner if you read the directions it says to use an ammonia based cleaner.
