Good thing I was flamed on and only looked at internet photos before I painted them for good.
The link that 07Cruiser has a perfect image of a sharp looking white F-150 with black accents and white painted bumpers. Awesome truck. If a person was to like that truck with the white bumpers the only way he'd be disappointed after sanding, prepping and painting is if he did a **** poor job at it.
Sorry Uncle Pete but paint is not truly permanent. It can be sanded and painted another color, powder coated, or chromed again (cheaper to buy another factory chrome bumper used on CL).
The point is commitment, what are you guys afraid of? It's just a bumper, we're not talking about getting a mail order bride or purchasing a home on the internet without seeing it. Innovative thinking and design wouldn't exist if you guys were in charge.
I get it, my approach was off by saying "plasti-crap" and that I "hate" plasti-dip. Sorry to offend the nancy's on this site with my vulgarity. Now JMdavis can go line by line and dissect my rant and then send me to the corner.
