    That's a nay for me. It makes the rear look like it's made out of plastic.

    That's the right way to experiment. 'Cause it will peel off if you don't like it. And it will peel off if you decide to paint/vinyl it.

    That said, just based on the photo, I don't care for the look. But if you do, that's what matters.

    I think it could look cool as long as you do it well. If you follow what the guy did in the video, he’s only using masking tape and that doesn’t guarantee a clean edge.

    SKills! Pull the tape when wet, like as soon as you can after spraying.

    I agree. I just can't decide between painting them white or wrapping them with the same vinyl in black

    BLACK to tie in with the rear quarter and the bottom half of the tailgate that you wrapped in black. I think white would break it up too much.
