I'm thinking about applying the rubberizer/flexible additive, then painting over that. That should make the paint stick, right? If so, are there directions I could find somewhere? Stop me if this is a terrible idea..

It's a bad idea, stop.....

No, that would make paint that is properly sprayed onto the car FLEXIBLE so that it gives with the bumper just in case it gets flexed. It's your car but any way that you decide to do it other than the correct way is going to look like crap. There are all kinds of websites out there that will explain to you how to paint your car but do you honestly think that you will be able to do it just by reading some data? What about the equipment? That stuff ain't cheap unless you buy the made in China garbage. If it were that easy, all of us would be painting cars. My father did it for 40 years and I don't know how to do it. I could have been taught by the best.

If it were my Camaro, I would have it professionally fixed. It's not a Pinto, it's part of American pride.
