Damn some real cowboys in here!  :grin:

Degrease the texture FIRST then a blow torch over the texture very quickly.

Cquartz and Gtechnic are ok but they won't hold old bumpers black..you have to use something like Autoglym bumper care (something oily) but please dont use linseed oil...

You can butcher old bumpers with cquartz and gtechnic. Be careful as you can't remove them products that easy.
