Rust-Oleum Bed Liner on Rims & Trim
Hello, I've been reading threads on this topic for several weeks now, but I do not have a clear answer. I finally joined the forums yesterday.
I have a few questions regarding the Rust-Oleum spray on Bed Liner.
1) I scuffed up my bumpers & side molding with a heavy duty (green) SB Pad, then wiped them with alcohol, and applied 3 coats of the BL. It immediately started to rub off (like plastic) where I enter & exit the vehicle. Should I have used a Primer? And should I have also used a more coarse (220) grit for scuffing them up?
2) I plan on painting my rims tomorrow with the BL, and I was wondering if a self etching primer is a necessity? Or is a well sanded bare rim best?
3) I want to put a Semi-Gloss clear coat on the rims, and a Matte clear coat on the bumpers & trim (to make them more durable & easier to clean), but I'm unsure of what type to use. Enamel? I bought several cans of Rust-Oleum 2X Ultra Cover clear, but I'm not sure if that's what I need.
The painting of my bumpers & trim has become quite the PITA, and I'm really hoping my rims are near perfect after the 1st (and hopefully only) attempt.
