Flex Additive and John Deere Blitz Black

Will the two get along? I'm currently considering painting my 1987 thunderbird with the Blitz Black, but I'd first like to know if you can add flex additive to it. I'm going to have to do this since my front and rear bumpers are plastic. I did a search in this forum, but nothing that popped up seemed to deal with painting plastic bumpers, which makes sense as most hot rods generally don't have them.

Thanks,

Tony

Is it John Deere Black, or Blitz Black? I want to do a whole car in this stuff, and it too has the rubber/plastic bumper cover piece.

blitz black is great

I have painted a few cars in blitz black and its great stuff. resistant to most scratches and hard to chip. its a very hard paint when it is dried, i would make a small test piece to see how it reacts to flexing.

I know this is an old post, but I am in the same boat. I would like to paint a 96 camaro Blitz black, but i need to use flex for the urethane and plastic panels. Did adding flex react with the paint? How much to add?
