Painted plastic bumper cover

It was grey. WOW that Krylon Fusion works great. Painted the little side steppies too.

can't beat Fusion!

I did my fender flares, front bumper, fog valance & some interior stuff & it holds up really well.

I used the Satin. Now I wish I would have used the flat or ultra flat. It looks pretty good but kinda off. Like a high gloss coat that didn't turn out right. Hard to tell in the pic though. May pop it off and do it in flat. may not. I'm lazy.

I noticed the satin really isn't that satin-y of a finish, my radio bezel looks just like gloss even after 4 coats of krylon satin clear on top of the satin fusion.

I used the gloss on my exterior parts.
My front bumper/valance has been done a couple years & it still looks shiny.
The fender flares have got a little dull or chalky looking, but I've been lazy & haven't kept them wiped down with armor all. After a quick wipe down, they look like new again.

I just squeezed the clips and pulled. came off easy. the tag lights were the hardest part.
