I like the look of my car--Glacier White--but to be honest, painted plastic bumpers are a pain in the butt. I hung a new front bumper on this car about 6 months ago, painted it to match before installing it, and then hit some retread on the interstate a month later and scratched/scuffed the paint off across the front of it.
I'm thinking of covering the bumpers and the very bottom of the rocker panel of the wagon with that indestructible truck bed coating. I can buy the kit and gun to spray it for about $170--anybody want the bed of his Baja sprayed with the leftover?--from my paint supply store. This is the real deal stuff and not some Wal-mart paint section spray bed liner stuff. My car is white, so I figure black bumpers with a little strip of black right at the bottom of the sides would look pretty good anyway.
Any thoughts on this? I can't find printed anywhere any problems with spraying this stuff on a plastic surface instead of a metal one. I figure bumpers with an indestructible coating would be nice. The only bad thing I can think of is bit of a weight gain over paint alone, though I doubt that would be significant.
