Cracked front lip, painting Bayson R replacement lip

Recommended Posts

So I have a cracked OEM front lip and I ordered the Bayson R oem replacement for $99 plus shipping. The lip they'll be shipping out is black and polyurethane. Any advice on painting this lip seal gray metallic? Should I sand, spray paint (how many coats), and then apply clearcoat? Thanks in advance.

This may sound funky, but since these lips get banged up all the time, why not play it on the inexpensive side and have bumper medic do it. If you're doing the painting that's a different story.

If you do decide to paint, use an adhesion promoter prior to painting. Then proceed with primer color and clear. Make sure the plastic is free of silicones and greases, and mold release prior to spraying on the adhesion promoter. U can use alcohol or a good detergent to overcome any of these.
