Oh I really couldn't care. But if you are going to pick at something that small then you have some real OCD problems.

Put up some pic's when you get done. You get an A+ for your idea but you get an F- for your post. Trying to make your ride different is an individual thing, some will like some will hate. But it's your ride.

I also have a question to everyone. As you can see I normal silver diamond plated bed rails I would like to paint them black but they are quite beat up and worn. Does anyone have any ideas or experiences that can help me?

Nothing you can do to them in terms of coatings is going to be durable. Paint, bedliner, etc, is going to scratch. Your best bet would most likely be using gun black. You can get it at WallyWorld.
I'd remove the metal and give it a good cleaning with an acid, then color it.

Do you mean matte black? And I don't have a Wallyworld but paint is easy to get

Gun blacking. It's more like a stain for metal. After blacking the steel, you can wax it for a nice shine.
If you don't have WalMart, then any gun shop or order it online.
