It's all painted, doesn't matter what the base material is, whether it is steel or plastic, if it is painted and cleared then you treat it all the same.

Unlike saturn sl1's that have raw plastic bumpers

lol at the cavi hubcaps on a fourbolt saturn

ours are painted to match the car that is why you don't see monte carlo's running around where the body is blue and the bumper is black so there is nothing special just treat it like you would and other painted surface on your car

If you use an orbital be careful on plastics, they can heat up quickly
