I'm doing the same to the tailgate only, if I like it I will get some metallic black matte vinyl to make it more permanent.

Same man, doing this later. Was wondering if anybody had done this before to their truck.

I've thought about it. It's good to see what it will look like. I actually thought of using the Anthracite PD on mine to make a kinda-sorta Platinum tailgate look

If I was going to do it I'd use vinyl. Vinyl would take a few years before it faded and started looking dull, Plasti-Dip would only take a few months.
