Painting lower portion of Laredo bumper

I have a 1999 WJ and i want to paint the bumper so it will stop fading every month. I am not experienced in it so i was wondering if somebody would give me a step by step of how to do it.

thank you.

Re: Painting lower portion of Laredo bumper

I would go to automotivetouchup.com and pick your color. Order enough paint for multiple coats....maybe like 3 cans. Also order two cans of clear coat. then i would go to your local auto parts store and get sandpaper....from 200 grit to the highest grit they have. Also get adhesion promoter(1 can) and high build primer(2 cans) Also get a couple tack cloths.
Then i would remove the bottom of the bumper and prep it for paint. Find a spot(like closed garage) that is free from dust and the elements. Clean the item with soap and water to remove grease, road grime etc. Then....Sand, sand, sand...till you get all shininess off and the desired tecture you want. I would then wash the item again with soap and water.

Let it air dry.
Do not touch the item now with your bare hands.
Use disposible gloves.
Then spray multiple times with adhesion promotor. Let it dry for a few monutes and then start your primer. Use multiple light coats till you get the finsih you desire. Sand inbetween if needed with like 800-1000 grit paper to remove high spots. After the primer.....spray with adhesion promoter again.
Wash the item after sanding or wipe clean with tack cloth. Tack the item with the cloth before painting. Spray multiple light coats until you get the desired finsih you desire. If you sand...use 100 grit or higher and be careful. After painting......tack the item and then spray multiple layers of clear-3-4 usually gets it.

Let it dry for a couple days. Leave it in the sun....etc. Then take some light compound/light cut and buff lightly by hand. You can also use a good cleaner wax. Wait a month or so and then add a good coat of carnuaba...like #26 Meguiers or p21S carnuaba.

GOOD LUCK!

thank you.
How badly is it faded? have you tried the back to black by mothers? painting it will require time and patience. if you dont have both you might not like the outcome. I recently tried using meguires supreme shine ( non-greasy ) about a week ago, its been holding up real good with only one application.
