Front Bumper Cover Chrome verses Paint Match
I have a 2004 Silverado and want to do something with the front bumper cover tired of the black and putting armorial on it all the time. Looking for some pictures of Chrome bumper cap and paint to match bumper cap.

I already have the paint because I painted the bezels on the handles when I install Escalade door handles. I just wasn’t sure what it would look like with the cover on the back bumper still black. Any one have some pictures from the side? I have never see a Silverado with the Chrome Bumper cover installed and kind of curious to see one. Another question when you painted the mirrors did you have to take them apart? I have power folding signal mirrors and don’t think I would be able to take them apart with out screwing something up.

Your Truck looks very good with the front painted and the back left black.
I will more than likely do the same with mine. I had to take the whole front grill off when I installed the Carriage Works cut out grill so I will probably remove it again and then sand down the front bumper cover to make it smooth.

ive been looking into it too, but with my 2-tone idk how it would look and i think that those chromed bumper caps will go to **** in a hurry since its abs and you would think that flexing it during installation would wrinkle the chrome.....
