Painting my fenders and bumpers

So I hate that my liberty has the ugly gray plastic molding. Wish I got the limited version. But I have been looking at different ideas of painting all of them. I'm actually leaning more towards putting herculiner on them. Anyone have any insight on this. I heard pros and cons of using it. I want it to look good and not crappy.

Checkout Krylon Fusion. It's for plastic. Paint them black.

Also I'm wondering if it will work well for my bumpers as well. Now I have to decide if I want to do a flat black or a gloss. I don't want to do a ****ty job. I want it to look great or I will be dissapointed.

I painted the bumpers as well. Use a grease wax and silicone remover, then scuff with w purple scotch brite pad, the clean again. Mask, Paint
