stone chipped- full respray or quick blow over?

hi,

i have found bumpers for my sisters car but they are stone chipped, would i have to do a full coat- like if i was spraying it from yellow? or just a quick blow over to get rid of the stone chips?

any idea? thanks!

you cannot use ordinary acrylic primer on rigid plastic. it just cracks and comes off after a while. use a proper plastic primer. they are usually yellow. spray the whole bumper with it [once rubbed down]. it needs to cure 24 hrs before smoothing down. then spray the bumper colour.

Easy. Take bumpers off, prep/spray primer, fit bumpers back on if car's needed, take bumpers back off and spray top coats and lacquer
