    I was thinking about that but idk if the paint will last on there. I have a feeling it will peel over time or scratch easily. I would rather just have the OEM black ones.

    True. I'd say use a bedliner spray on them, usually that stuff is meant for some abuse.

    That I don't know... It may just be easier to tape it off using newspaper and blue painter's tape. That is what I used on the black plastic pieces on my bumper when I painted it.

    Glad I could supply a 'back up' plan for you. GLWT/S :)

    They will be clips. And as long as you do proper prep work, the paint will hold up. It would be no different then painting a part on a vehicle. Yes it may be exposed to more abuse and rock chips, but the paint wont just flake off. If u have any ?'s just ask me, I am an autobody painter
