they will flake off when you bend tbe plastics your onky hope is to let the paint cure in a cold dark place so its more flexable....i wouldn't

fenders flex a lot more than a bumper on a car. flex agent really does nothing.

what you could do is cut the plastics so they don't flop around as much. i wouldn't clear coat them because you'll need to redo them quite often
