Painted my bumper... Now what?

So for thoose of you that have seen by build so far, you have noticed the ugly grill guard that came withe the jeep when I bought it. I traded it along with the factory bumper for a WARN rock crawler bumper. It had a few rust spots on it, so I sanded it down and cleaned it. Then I painted it with 3 coats of RUSTOleum paint. Is there anything else that I need to do for protection or am I done. suggestions will be apperciated.

Just finished painting new front bumper from nates 4x4. I used 2 coats of self etching primer and 3 coats rustoleum hammered black. Is a clear coat really needed?? Itching to bolt it on so the new superwinch can get installed.

So I've answered my own question... Already chipped paint on bumper before install. Put the shackle on and was wondering how the metal on metal would affect the paint. The shackle quickly chipped off a small amount of paint right on the edge of the bumper at the weld. Wondering if anyone has used any type of bump stop or rubber coating on the shackle or bumper to prevent damage. My solution: I painted some rubber gromets and gorilla glued them at the point of contact on bumper. Looks good and hopefully will hold up to the abuse. Oh and I threw on a clear coat of protective enamel to the bumper.
