If the bumpers are prepared corectly and plastic primer used they will not crack or peel.
I have painted about 10 sets of bumpers and mirrors over the past 3-4 years and never had any problems or come back .....
any more advice needed let me no.:)

Did mine 5 years ago and still looking great! Except from where i reversed into a 106 2 years ago :no:no

Plastoflex bonding coat is what you need to begin with or the primer wont stick and it will fall of very soon:(

Any chance you could do a step by step guide on how a total amateur could colour code old bumpers please?:confused: Would be super useful.;)

Colour me bumpers !

Please ? It makes such a difference but I dont think I could justify paying someone else. Would definitely give it a go if I knew how to.
