I have some rust on my bumper from a small accident. I was planning on simply sanding down the rusted areas, covering up the rest of the car with plastic, and repainting the bumper with some flat black paint that i bought at the store. Is there anything wrong with my plan of action? Do I need to put primer first? Or is the flat paint enough?

Alright I'll attempt to keep this short but yeah... OK, first off if you are sanding down to bare metal you will most definatly want to put on some sort of primer to help the paint stick. Also when you paint a bumper the easiest way to prevent over spray from damaging the rest of your paint is to remove the bumper and paint it off the car. This will save you alot of headaches with over spray and the possibility of improper masking of the car if your not familiar with masking off a car. (No BS there is an art to it!) Also what kind of car is it that is damaged?
