No on all accounts, if you are talking about the endura bumper, the micro cracks will come through the 2K primer, just a matter of when.
Also, it must be stripped.
Also NO polyester should ever come in contact with the bumper itself or it will bubble, only a matter of when.
Only thing that touches the bumper is a two part plastic repair for the bad spots, like Duramix 4036, 4040, 4030, Sem, 3M or other like products.
Any paint rep that says treat like any urethane bumper, most likely has no clue what one is.
All polyester is only to be used over epoxy as a barrier-coat.

Use no solvent borne cleaner or adhesion promoter.
