Looking for advice on prepping and sanding a front bumper for vehicle wrapping, please?

Hi again everyone

After a bit of advice on prepping panels for wrapping please..

I've got a used front bumper to wrap, however there are a few chips and defects which show through the wrap. Has anyone got advice on best way or technique to prep for the smoothest finish?

Thanks in advance!
Matt

Use sandpaper 400 or 500 to smoothen everything but you will have paint damage afterwards!

100% with Bernard unless they are paying you to repair before wrapping.
Try and get a paint repair shop to work with you if it's not something you have done before. Paint preparation is not as easy as you think.
