I've been contemplating painting some of the plastic parts on my bumpers. Anyone have any suggestions of what paint would hold up best?

Or plasti dip first and see how you like that! It might not last the life of the vehicle, but you can easily retouch any spots that get chipped/faded. It's fun stuff!

Just curious, when you repaired it, did you just spray over, or did you actually use the plasti dip thinner that re-liquifies (is that a word?!) it?
