A Step-by-Step Guide to Painting Your Car’s Bumper with Dupli Color Trim and Bumper Paint 

By Sharon R. Lee

Have you ever wanted to spruce up the look of your car, but didn’t want to break the bank? One great way to do that is by painting your car’s bumper with Dupli Color Trim and Bumper Paint.

It’s an easy DIY project that can really make a big difference in the appearance of your vehicle. Plus, it doesn’t require any special skills or knowledge. In this article, we’ll go over exactly how to paint your car’s bumper with Dupli Color Trim and Bumper Paint. 

Prepare Your Vehicle for Painting 

Before you start painting, there are a few steps you’ll need to take in order to make sure the job goes smoothly.

First, you’ll want to wash and dry your car thoroughly so there’s no dirt or debris on the surface that could interfere with the paint job.

You should also use a wax and grease remover, such as Dupli Color Prep Cleaner, in order to get rid of any residue on the surface of your vehicle. This will help ensure that the paint adheres properly and won’t peel off after it’s applied. 

Next, use a piece of fine grit sandpaper or steel wool to lightly sand down any scratches or chips in the bumper so they don’t show up after you’ve painted it.

Once that’s done, wipe down the area again with wax and grease remover just to be sure that all traces of oil have been removed from the surface.

Finally, cover any areas around the bumper (such as windows) with painter’s tape so they don’t get accidentally painted during the project. 

Applying Dupli Color Trim and Bumper Paint 

Now that your vehicle is ready for painting, it’s time to start applying the actual paint! Before doing this step, though, make sure you open some windows in order to provide adequate ventilation while you’re working.

Then pour out some of Dupli Color Trim & Bumper Paint into a shallow container (such as a bowl). Dip a clean cloth rag into this container and then begin wiping down the bumper with it in long strokes from left to right (or vice versa).

Make sure not to apply too much pressure when doing this step; otherwise you may end up removing too much paint from other areas of your vehicle. After this is done, let everything dry for at least 2 hours before continuing on with Step 3.  

Painting Over Dupli Color Trim & Bumper Paint 

Once everything has dried completely (at least 2 hours), it’s time for Step 3: painting over Dupli Color Trim & Bumper Paint! Start by shaking up one can of Duplicolor Touch Up Spray Paint until its contents are well mixed together; then spray onto horizontally moving surfaces like railings or vertical surfaces like walls at a distance of 10–12 inches away from them (not too close!).

Move quickly but carefully around each area while spraying so that you don’t create any runs or drips in your paint job but don’t worry if this happens; simply wait until everything has dried before touching up any mistakes!

Additionally, make sure not to overlap too much when spraying; otherwise you may end up with an uneven finish once everything has dried completely after about 2 hours (again!). 


Painting your car’s bumper using Duplicolor Touch Up Spray Paint is relatively simple—as long as you follow these steps precisely! Just remember: always wear protective clothing while painting (like gloves and goggles), keep plenty of ventilation throughout your workspace while spraying paints/chemicals onto surfaces and never forget about proper safety precautions when handling potentially harmful materials like paints/chemicals during home improvement projects! With these tips in mind and following our simple guide above correctly should give even novice painters good results every single time—so what are you waiting for? Get out there and get started today! Good luck!
