Default Restoring Front Lip?

Looking to touch up my Polyurethane front lip. It is in pretty rough shape and I will need to sand down the finish to take care of some pretty bad road rash. Also the finish is looking pretty stressed and has some bad discoloration. Anyone have any suggestions on grit count for paper and a good paint?

I've been using this for years, Dupli-Color bumper coating.
Amazon.com: Dupli-Color FB105 Black Flexible Bumper Coating - 11 oz.: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Dupli-Color FB105 Black Flexible Bumper Coating - 11 oz.: Automotive

You need this as well (adhesion promoter)
Amazon.com: Dupli-Color CP199 Clear Adhesion Promoter Primer - 11 oz.: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Dupli-Color CP199 Clear Adhesion Promoter Primer - 11 oz.: Automotive

Once you use this combo, you will never use anything else ever again. If your painting a raw urethane lip you need to first clean it with mineral spirits, then acetone. Then sand any imperfections with 400, then 600.

Wear a mask when spraying the adhesion promoter. That stuff is really nasty and will leave you with shortness of breath for hours if you breath it in.

One thing I had issues with all Duplicolor products was generally they were very tough to shake up well .
Thus; they were always clogging up on me.
This went for all 3 coats .
So one day I was speaking to an Australian
Tourist here In Los Angeles and he gave me the best tip for this issue .
He would boil water then simply place your paint cans in the water as soon as boiling stops, then shake each can for 2 minutes .
It will spray with ease.

Just be careful that you don't get the cans too hot. I've used this method a few times and I had one can bulge out the domed bottom of the can due to the increased internal pressure.
