I don't think I would wire wheel it.

I think you will getter better results with the actual bumper and trim paint.

Here's a couple pictures of mine.

Just remember that it is all about the prep work. You can't cover up obvious issues with MORE paint.

I sanded mine down with a 150 then finshed up with a 400, taped it off and shot it with light even coats.

Regards,

Ken

just depends though man, do you go out and beat it up? because Ive painted a lot of bumpers and things and generally, if your hard on your rig the paint doesn't hold up regardless. but a honestly i would use a wire wheel over sand paper but to each his own, but make sure you wipe it down with acetone or any kind of alcohol to get all the dust and debris you created during the process, give it a good primer coat and whatever kind of paint will work, i always use the cheap crap because i end up redoing it all the time because im constantly welding on stuff. and don't paint when its to cold out or the paint doesn't bite to the primer or material quite right.

yea wire wheel is the way to go esp if its rusty...I always wipe with iso-alcohol.

The brush on bed liner followed with a coat of flat black spray paint holds up extremely well....its very tough
