I have used the bbq paint and hated it it chips and oxydises really fast. I have been using flat black engin enamal and satin or flat clear coat for my grill. its tough and cleans up really nice

Well that makes two of us with the same situation and solution!

My only hesitation in doing this project is how I'm gonna remove the rear bumper. I have no idea where to start, and the stupid thing is nearly falling off already...

Unbolt it from the wheel wheels, remove a center screw under the little fancy thingymabob that pops off, and pull it straight back.

After you see how easy the rear bumper comes off... you'll wonder how it every stays on!

Any idea which one of these products is most durable???

I used to use Rustoleum BBQ Black on engines, headers, exhausts, and just general painting. It's between flat and gloss such that dirt doesn't stick and there is no gloss, just a slight sheen, and durable. Anyone used this?
I used spray on bedliner from home depot. It's held up good. No chips or wear in over a year.

That's what im saying ... Duplicolor bed armor has Kevlar in, it it holds up excellent then use caliper paint whatever color you want it bonds great and it's made for harsher punishment so less touch up time

For the guys that have used bed liner can you post some pics please. I'm debating using Berliner or flat black engin enamel.

Don't use engine enamel, use something designed for plastic.

Krylon fusion is great but just like anything else, if it gets scratched, the layer underneath is not going to be black. Although mine is a bit scuffed up in some areas from the trails, it still looks generally good 4 months later!

I started this project last night, left cladding on taped everything off. Cleaned it with paint thinned, sanded to to rough it up, then used a adhesive boosting primer, than applied three coats of truck bed liner, each coat really has to go on thin to avoid clumping, I really held the can back to get a good even spray. It's looking good Here's stage one complete, bumpers tonight maybe.

I just masked mine off on the vehicle. No problems at all, and a lot easier than removing it all. It is a Jeep, I didn't need grade A perfection just to beat it up in the woods.

I used primer first and think that it helps hold the paint on WAY better. The chip is from the ONE door i didnt prime. GD!!
