The CI Riviera we had, had an awful front bumper, it was all shades, and I didn't want to go to the expense of a repaint, they don't look very good after a while anyway.
So, 3-4 years ago I spilled some gray vinyl silk on the drive, and despite the sun, wind, rain, ice and me walking over it, I grabbed the pot as it was roughly the right colour, an old scrubby paint brush as set to with it, it looked spot on and a good colour match, I left it for a few weeks, washed the van, gave the bumper a really good soak and a scrub, and it didn't fall off, we went away in it for two weeks, awful weather, looked at it when I got back, it still looked good, no chips or crack or peeling, so I did the skirts too as they looked a bit rough by comparison.
Yes it is a bit rough arsed, but it still looked good when I sold it, beauty is if it ever did look sad again, I could easily fix it.
I've had another van since with the same problem, I found a bit of trim the same colour and got B&Q to mix me up a small pot in a matt vinyl, it too looked good and never came off, for less than £2 it looked very good.
Just saying like
