Tolew45 Posted July 9, 2012 Share Posted July 9, 2012 Hi all, my front bumper lip has some dings from steep driveways, etc. I have decided to paint it flat black to be like the previous years' Legacy GT (will follow it with the side skirts and rear bumper lip as time permits, they are removed at the moment. I'm trying for the sleeper look). The lip is more like a pseudo-lip that is part of the bumper, and originally painted the same color as the car. So far, I have sanded down the lip to plastic and to as close as I could get to the edge of where the lip meets the bumper, which is about half an inch. After sanding it to the plastic, it left a dusty look to the trim from the sanding and paint residue that I couldn't get off. I would have left it that way, if not for the uneven sanding line and the dusty look. So what I need help on is paint recommendation for a flat matte black plastic trim look for the front lip. Would I achieve the flat black look with just black primer, or do I need some plastic trim paint? So far I found some RustOleum at Walmart, primer and also "Trim & Bumper Paint", and Krylon Primer. Or should I use something like Plasti-dip, though haven't seen that in the Home Depots around me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
