Rustoleum spray-can bedliner on plastic cladding/bumpers?

The can says "for metal surfaces", but has anyone used this stuff on the cladding or bumpers? I'm having a HELL of a time trying to figure out what to use. I want something tougher/more durable than Krylon for plastic paint, something to resist scratches from the weeds and rocks and such. Everything I look at says "metal surfaces". Any experience using the bedliner spray, and what were the results?

I used it for my grill, and it turned out to be good. I plan to do the rest of the cladding/bumpers with the stuff eventually.

I used it to and I like it it just traps a lot of dirt and stains cause of the texture I plan on spraying a smooth black glos coat over it hoping that will help keep it from trapping dirt other then that it's great stuff

I used it on my cladding, rear view mirrors, and bumpers before I did my Monstaliner paint job. Holds on well buy traps alot of dirt. Try painting with it then adding krylon satin/gloss on top of it. It looked very nice when I did it.

^^this. It works pretty well if you prime it first. If not it flakes off quickly

I used it and it works great. Just dont let mud dry on it. Spray it off often and it stays plenty clean. Be sure and take the cladding off and scrub it down good with soap and water with a red scotch bright pad to get it to bond good.

So if the stuff adheres to plastics just fine, why does Rustoleum say "only for metal surfaces"? I'm not doubting some of you fellas have had good experiences doing it, it just seems like theres gotta be a reason why they specify metal surfaces. I don't want to hafta scrape/sand this stuff off after I find out it doesn't work.

Is there a better option? I'm not a big fan of straight paint, (eg; Krylon Fusion) I want something thicker/tougher/more durable that will still like glue to the plastic. Perhaps the bedliner spray with a couple topcoats of paint is the way to go.

Also, if anyone knows of a good online tutorial on how to do a good classic military rattle-can camo job on a truck, that would be very helpful. I'm not having much luck on YouTube. This is my bug-out vehicle as much as its my weekend toy, and I think traditional camo looks awesome if done well.
