paint ???'s

this winter i plan to start preping my car so i can paint it this spring. i have a few questions on what kind of paint to use.]
1. what material is are bumpers made of, and what kind of paint to use on these?
2. is there any type of stripper i can use on the bumpers and ground effects, or i just have to snad them?
3. i purchased a fiberglass spoiler. do i need special paint for this? do i need a flex additive?

thank you for your help. i am haveing trouble finding this out. i tried posting on thirdgen.org but for some reason i cant register on it, and when i searched i got camaro stuff, so i wasnt sure if our cars bumpers are made out of the same material.
thanks, brian

ps happy thanksgiving

Re: paint ???'s

flex additive on anything flexible (bumpers, spoiler, maybe even the hood vents).... being an exfiberglass worker... leave the spoiler in a booth with the heat on before prepping... this will expose any air pockets that are between the gelcoat and fiberglass/resin.
