Treat it just like any plastic bumper.
Clean, scuff, apply a plastic prep, (likeBulldog)
prime and paint.
I would suggest epoxy primer for durability. :cool:

scuff with GREY scotch brite, using a sanding paste helps as well, but not needed, clean, wax and grease remove, shoot some plastic parts adhesion promoter, after that you can either go straight in to basecoat or SS, or if you want optimal adhesion and durability shoot an epoxy after the promoter then get in to your color.

just wipe em down real good with laquer thinner, i mean real good. make sure they dry real good too.
spray some adhesion promoter (primer/sealer) then paint & clear.

I notice almost ever g-body i see, unless a recent paint job. Has a cracked and chipped bumper cover. Is this just because these bumpers covers were made to be too felxible or because the prep work was not done properly. Oh and also I used some adhesion promoter on some interior panels before and It didnt turn out too great. Kind of made a weird texture on the panel?

the prep was shitty on the bumpers, as for you using it and it creating texture, you done fucked up!! no worries man, live and learn, you just sprayed it to heavy, adhesion promoter is supposed to be sprayed really lightly just 1 single dry coat, you will barely even notice you have sprayed it depending on what kind you use, like sikkens primer po, you dont even see anything, duponts pla-stic you can somewhat see, it has a slight tinch of colour to it, so just spray it lighter next time and you'll be good to go bro.
