Ive got the ‘05 escape XLT that im wanting to paint myself, just using rattle cans. Im starting to look into it but cant find much on painting the bumper/lip that goes all the way around the car, if i sand it and paint it like i do the rest of the car will it do okay long term?

the bumper lip that you're referring to, its that typical mat-grey color that the 1st Gen Escapes came with, right? I've used the brand SEM to restore that trim before. SEM part# 39193 Dark Gray Bumper is what you're gonna need. 2 cans will do the whole car all around.
