Thanks for chiming in, sanding the bumpers first is good advice and sorry I didn't mention it...brain fart...forgot. It's similar to sanding a substrate for painting, the chemicals enter the substrate easier and in this case, help the stripper do it's job...when a substrate is sanded for paint, the solvents enter the substrate and help with a chemical bond.
