Painting a front license plate bracket...

I want to paint my front license plate bracket to match my car. I am going to sand it down, prime it, paint it, and clear it. I tried to do this work before, but didn't sand it and it chipped off in a matter of weeks. The ugliness has just gotten to me and I want to do it right this time.

Does this sound like a good painting procedure?

Also - what is the proper way to mount it? It comes with mounting hardware, but it looks like I'll need to crimp it in place.

uhhh, if ur licence plate bracket is anything like mine its just a big ol piece of soft black plastic with a texture on it....."sanding it down" doesnt make a whole lotta sence, neither does painting it in my opinion.

you need to apply an adhesion promotor to the plastic first then sealer or basecoat and clear, Dupont 222s is what I use. By the way this promotor can only be acquired throuh a body shop supplies distributor.

Send me the piece, I'll paint it at the body shop. It'll be smooth, and will never never flake off. Satisfaction and color match guaranteed. basecoat/clearcoat. if your car is laser red, it might look something like this:


$20 you pay shipping both ways.

I'll even throw in two new large plastic rivets to reattach it.
