So you didn't powdercoat it then, you just replaced the bumper with a base model that didn't have chrome. That's not a bad idea either. I could hit the junkyard and hope for a black bumper without damage. That or just pay to powdercoat it.

Thanks for the tip. I'll tell him you sent me sir.

Anyone here want to trade their black bumper for a Chrome one? haha

Your 06 rear bumper will match my 11? I know it's still 2nd gen, but I'm new so not fully sure.. Let's make a swap sir. You know you want that Chrome!

Hmm. Plastidip seems decent. As long as you have enough coats it will be durable, and that will then also help removal be easier if the coats are thick enough.

So you've had your bumper derp'd for 7 months without any major scratches or peeling?

I've had my rims and rear bumper done for 7 months and not one problem. I did 4 coats on both. Hell, I've done a few interior pieces also and the finish isn't rough or anything as long as you spray it evenly. There's a whole thread dedicated to plasti-dipping parts, check out if you're thinking about doing it. Also, it dries in like 30 minutes which is nice so you can do your coats every 30 minutes or so. I waited about an hour after the last coat before putting the parts back on. For the bumper, I just taped off the truck with garbage bags and sprayed the bumper while still installed. It helps to remove the garbage bags and tape while still wet. Any over spray peels right off without damaging anything.
