    So i have a 2002 sr5 in thundercloud. I was thinking about color matching the top of the bumper and the chrome part of the bumper. Along with the grill. What do yall think? Also what would be a good paint to use to paint the plastic and chrome?

    First, I think your truck looks great as it is. But I can understand...I got another set of wheels for mine and I'm currently looking to paint/powdercoat/anodize.


    One reversible option that I just thought of was to first spray with plasti-dip, then paint over that. That way, I can always peel off. I haven't done anything like this though so I'm not sure.

    Goodluck.
