I'm curious on the outcome and steps to re-do the exterior plastics. I tried re-doing the rear corners and I failed miserably. To a point where I had to buy new rear bumper cover. I still have the original and would like to experiment and learn.

These 2k paints are expensive ($20/can) but they have a catalyst that gets injected into the can, then you have a pot life before the stuff hardens in the can.

Very similar to the Endura products. I'd be curious to see how it holds up on plastic.

Cool, hadn’t heard of Endura . They show a lot of videos where they’re painting color-matched plastic bumpers with the stuff, so I’m hoping it’ll work on the textured black trim pieces - they don’t need to be nearly as perfect.

I’ve ordered their adhesion promoter, once it comes in, I’ll try on my front bumper and post up pics.

The paint doesn't matter, you definitely want the adhesion promoter on the plastics. This after scuffing and de-greasing of course. No acetone based cleaners, it will melt that stuff instantly.
