Re: painting bumpers?
I usually just use K+H Bumper Black, $13.50 from Supercrap. No primer, just clean it up and spray it on. Has the added benefit of being really useful for touching up inside the car as well :) I usually get a few years out of it on heavy wear areas like door handles etc., other bits are 5 years old and still have the original paint on them.
