Very surprised to find this (linked) article lacked any discussion about the use of a flex additive in the paint itself. In a urethane or flexible body part, use of a flex additive is CRITICAL to ensuring the paint does not crack or spiderweb under stress. The only mention I saw was the mention of a flexible primer before putting down the paint itself.
