    Painting Air Dam

    Alright... here goes.

    I've completed adhering the new front air dam to the car and i've completed blending it into the stock bumper so it looks like one complete factory piece. My question now is: what steps need to be taken to prep the bumper to receive paint? It is a new polyurethane lip and I've heard it can be a bear to paint polyurethane. I've heard that it needs to be sprayed with Bulldog Flex Spray to allow adhesion by the paint to the bumper. True? And if so, do I need to use it, then primer? Or does it take the place of the primer?

    Basically, anyone that's painted their car or polyurethane, tell me what worked and just as importantly... tell me what didn't.

    Thanks again guys!

    Thanks for the help. A local paint supplier gave me a 1 stage acrylic enamel and after giving it some thought, I determined I should have gotten a urethane based paint. When I asked them about it, they said that the enamel would be fine? Your thoughts?

    If I did use a urethane based paint, would I still need to add the flex agent?

    thanks
