Do you think it would be worth coating the whole car with a flex agent?

no, not worth it at all, you can acctually get away with painting bumpers without flex, but its better to use it.

the one thing i dont like about adding flex, is it makes watersanding/polishing harder

Wow, Peter! Excellent work. You will be one of the few people on here that can afford to get that quality work done on your Bonneville. Largely because you have the ability and resources to do it that way.

Your car will be mint when you get done.

You going to prime the car?

if so, prime the doors first, can you say "Supercharged Pursuit Vehicle"? It would be awesome to see a idea of what a police Bonneville would have looked like.
