But I think it's worked out well as a thread that addresses all aspects about urethane bumpers.

just did a 79 trans am..hate all the palstic...but...had some really dry sun damaged areas, and a few gouges, so, I sanded all the original paint off, down to the plastic, with 180 da, went over it with 220, then used bulldog, lightly, 2 coats, then omni epoxy, thinned slightly, sat overnight, sprayed 1 coat urethane 2k, then da with 320, then wet sand to 400 grit, almost all the urethane was gone by that point, then black base, and 2 light coats clear, 1 coat would do on bumpers, but I buffed these.
if you are just sanding to original prmer, then you really dont need adhesion promoter, 400, is fine to go to epoxy, but thin it down a little,,, you could even skip the epoxy if the original primer is ok, but I would still use bulldog before base color...
