    So I painted the middle portion of the front bumper. But now some of the paint is chipping off from driving. I dont want to keep re-painting it over. I was thinking of removing the paint and getting vinyl. What should I use and will it damage the paint on the factory bumper?

    Why would you remove the paint if your planning on putting vinyl on it?

    Some guys have had theirs done with Line-x. It looks really good, not to mention will not chip.
