i did mine with some walmart spray can stuff, and my fender flares, and some it is chipping. But i didnt take my time. if i applied more coats and prepped it would be awesome and for the most part its held up well.

My bumpers are both fusion, however before you paint, take some tire shine to it (the spray kind) and see if that helts it first

I use it for car shows and it always does the trick ;D (Works great on linex bed too! just be carefull standing on it doh!)

Also, take it off the truck, itll save you from overspray on both the truck and the bumper.

Only four bolts holding on the bumper to the truck, not sure on bumper to valence

There are 6 or 8 bolts holding the valence to the bumper. It depends if your valence has foglights mounted in it. if you do there are 6 bolts.

Correction on my last. I'm getting old and can't remember anything. It is 8 or 10 depending on the foglights.
