Default PTM bumpers complete

Grabbed 2 cans of the Duplicolor perfect match and painted both front and rear bumpers. Had them plasti dipped black for almost a year and finally got tired of it. I'm happy with the new look.

Did you pull the front or just tape off and paint in place?

Looks good! Been debating about doing the same.

[MENTION=127257]whatpavment?[/MENTION] very nicely done. I'm hoping to do the same to mine in the very near future. I am growing weary of the black plastidip.

Looks good! You should paint the honeycomb in the bumper opening black.

I didn't touch the chrome since I had plastidip on it already. There is a small part where the paint got wrinkles so I'm gonna hit it with some cleaner and a little 220 to remove the contamination.

Do it. I have $16 total invested in paint. I still love plastidip but I got tired of the bumpers. Hell my wheels are dipped. I've been using the stuff for quite a few years now. Gave the truck a new fresh look with the matching bumpers. Now I have to decide if I want to blackout the headlight guts.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I looked at it this afternoon.
