I had a bumper off a zJ I want to paint and nothing seems to work even 100$ gallon of Airplane paint stripper (PF 747) ??? Any good ideas??

I’m I forgot to mention it’s a plastic bumper cap so heat isn’t really an option. I’m also wanting to do a proper primer/paint/clear job

Quit begging for help with every post. Just ask a question. Start a conversation. You post like a 8 y/o bugging mom for a cookie.

Get a grinder.

You can't paint your bumper? Why? Just take a rattle can and spray it over...

Sounds like it’s powder coated rather than paint. Sometimes a heat gun will soften it enough to work it off peeling it up with a putty knife. Easier though to just sand to scuff it up and smooth out rough spots and spray over it.

Thank you for the info. I can se there are some gressballs on here who have massive egos, hilarious! Im actually giving it a full proper paint job and haven’t ran into this type of problem before. I shall get the grinder out.

It’s a plastic bumper cap. I want to give it a proper paint job primer/paint/clear. Not chemicals work and heat will wreck it.
You didnt say it was a plastic bumper did you?

Why the fuck are you trying to strip it? Get the da sander and get to fucking work.

If it's plastic don't use regular paint stripper, use PEELER from Klean-Strip. It's a rattle can , at your local body supply maybe Napa. That's what the @hops use. Been doing this for 40 years. Don't listen to the wanna be's.

I work in a shop that restores cars. 3 years I did a 51 Bentley and stripped the car due to body damage and a re spray. We have not used stripper or pellet ever. We use abrasives. If it’s not abrasives we dip the car. Others that have commented on here have a strong background and work in the industry. So not so much of a wannabe situation.

Sorry if I offended the few that do know what they're talking about, but seems like everybody was just being a dick to the kid instead of actually helping. You can't powder coat plastic, sand plastic is very time consuming and will damage the srf causing alot of rework and if it had factory texture it would be ruined. Regular aircraft style remover will destroy a plastic of fiberglass part. . Don't see the harm in actually answering a question correctly instead of acting like a bunch of poser jackals to some one starting out. Maybe you should have stepped in and gave him some advice.

so you did, sorry didnt notice it amongst all the other dick swinging going on. thought the purpose here was to help someone that didnt know what he was doing in a particular instance, not stand around and thump chests . guess I was wrong . I was trying to give him an easy way to get something done without having to teach a freaking autobody course. I figured if he aske d the questions he did he probably didnt even know what a DA was or how not to destroy the poly part with some sandpaper. i will leave the answers up to you seasoned professionals from now on Bucko
