prepping bumper for re-paint

395 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  OperationTwilight
Can someone list the steps that are required to clean and prep a bumper for a re-paint? For example, my car is black, and I have a grey bumper that I purchased. I want to prep the bumper, so I can take it in to the paint shop and all they have to do is spray it or whatever the necessary steps are.
I dont care how long it takes, I have some free time this week.

Sand it down smooth.

Prime it up with some spray paint primer

Sand it down again to get rid of any last bumps or nicks.

Prime it up and use a real fine sand paper and just once it over.

Should be good to go.
