Default Charcoal grey truck with black bumpers?

I have been looking into plastidipping my chrome bumpers since I just did it to my rims a few months ago. Has anyone done that and want to share some pictures? Or anyone's input if I should give it a shot?

Plastidip is great. I love it, and it's easy to use.

Go for it! It should look pretty good considering it was a factory color configuration choice back in 2008 for the 60th anniversary edition F-150. If I had your truck and was considering doing it, I would do the rockers as well.

Thanks, man. I'm wanting to do the rockers soon and put on some OEM fender flares. I think they'll complete the look. Well, those and my tail light guards I already have and the grille guard I want.

Yes, plastidip is matte, but they make a plasti dip clear metallic that you can put over it if you want it to shine. I love that they're matte, though, so I'm leaving mine that way.
