    @Enkeiavalanche Thanks Man, The Avalanche Looks Good As Well.
    @FrigginNoodles First I Used DupliColor Adhesion Promoter, To Help The Paint Stick To The Chrome, After Letting That Dry I Used DupliColor Trim Paint (Matte Black), Then After 2 Cans Of That (Really Wanted A Thick Surface).. Let It Dry Then Sprayed It With DupliColor Matte Cleat Coat. & That Picture Is The Final Product. (Rear Bumper, Door Handles & Rims Are Next)..

    Can't wait to see more. Your paint job looks smooth.

    I have also been starting to change all the chrome on mine to black. I am using plasti dip to do so because I haven't quite mastered the rattle cans yet and would hate to make a permanent mistake or spend hours sanding. Someday down the line I will be comfortable enough to go for it with real paint though.

    Lookin' good! Blacking out front/rear bumpers will be my first mod come spring time; it's a long awaited mod. It's nice that you're good with paint, how's the match in the sunlight?
