I've been looking and I'm still not sure I've found my answer..

I want to paint my '99 WJ black. Thing is, I have large rubber panels on the sides and the bumpers. Can I paint these? Or do I need to buy new ones w/ a paintable base?


(that's my jeep if you haven't seen it in another topic)

Have to check with Billy, but I believe you need a plastic primer to keep the paint flexible. He'll probably be able to give you some brands.

Yes you need a flexable primer and paint system. Plastics DO NOT like anything to stick to them, unless you prep and do everything to a T. Check out my Sticky on fender flares and trim. That will give you a good idea Wink I'm also working on a Paint thread that is almost done. If there are any questions feel free to shoot me a PM or look for me on Yahoo.
