Looks good. I hope you have a TON of flex agent in there.

The paint will stick fine if he prepped it right and used enough flex agent. Keep in mind that virtually all new cars on the road today have bumper covers made of the same material. Those urethane covers are painted just like his side panels and they hold up to road chips better than the paint on the sheetmetal. :div20:

I just want to know how much work it was to sand down and level the texture in the plastic, since it looks glass smooth now. :Wow1:

I applied a sealer to it first,then wet sanded that to get the smooth look,then painted,wet sand again,and then finished with another light coat of paint,I payed special attention to the prepping of these panels,the right flex agent and all,I can bend these and the paint won't crack :div20:
