Default how to properly prep bumper with spider cracks !

just created this new threat cause the other one wasnt getting any attention lol. this is how it looks after some sanding with 80 grit. Im a complety noob in this but I would like to learn. is the grey color thing primer. are the black spots that I sanded bare plastic. on the black spots the webs are till a little visible will they go away after I spray primer. how deep should I go with the sanding. the paint is falling apart at the center probably because of a hit. should I sand the entire bumper or just the damage spots . thanks for reading

a flexible high fill primer will do the trick

I'm trying to get the spider cracks out of mine too and so is this other guy, check out these links

is this far enough??

Spider Webbing

Do, 80, 180, 320. I was surprised, after I sanded with 320, it was like the spider webs just vanished. I'm getting mine painted the 21st. I need to sand around the bird logo a little more, I can still see some cracking.

Remove the bird logo. It looks cleaner.
