Hi everyone! When I was in my early 20s I had a neighbor that painted cars. He use to say that clear coating black trim and bumpers was an easy way to keep them looking new.
Fast forward to today, and I have purchased a new rear bumper top, front bumper skirt, and wiper cowl. I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the idea of the below process?

1. Scrub and clean all parts with wax & grease remover.
2. Rough the parts up with 600 grit sandpaper.
3. Repeat step 1
4. 3 good coats of adhesion promoter
5. 3 good coats of spraymax 2k semi matte clear coat.

I'm also toying with the idea of throwing down a couple coats of SEM satin trim paint.

I have a 2013 truck. I first put that on when it was 3 years old or so. The cowl was starting to fade at that time. It last about a year in California climate. So I do have to reapply it. Brings it back to new looking. I guess you would have time before you would need this due to parts are new. But it won’t harm brand new parts.

Look into CarPro DLux, Gyeon Trim, and similar coating products specific for plastics
