Color Matching Bumpers


Recommended Posts

Who has had their bumpers color matched? What option did you go with? Factory chrome and painted over it, buy a plastic bumper and paint that, or just suck it up and pay over $1000 for a special edition bumper from gm.

I'm going to paint mine soon but the chrome is gonna be media blasted.. I think it's soda ash I'm not 100% but I've been taking my chrome items to get painted for years to the same guy and I've never had issues and (NEVER) had paint come off.

My 2015 was offered from the order build sheet as either, chrome or paint ...

 

I wish I saw that option! I did a lot of research though so might have been only on the 2500 sheet?

Plasti dip is easy and cheap. If applied correctly and maintained correctly it will last 2-3 years. You can have the bumpers wrapped but it's expensive. Also street scene now makes front bumper covers that look really good and roll pans that I really like.

Mine are plastidipped but I'm still looking for a good shop that's close to my area to get mine painted. Or if anyone with a WDT wants chrome bumpers I'll gladly trade them haha.

My bumpers and bull bar are dipped also. Paint in the ass to keep clean. close to matching but even with glossifier there is no shine to them.

Same here, glossifier lasts about 2 or 3 days then wears off. The color looks great but the matte finish is getting old. I don't like having matte and gloss everywhere. & Don't get me started on the stains with white dip!

99% of chrome shops can also remove the chrome. I would go that route then make sure your shop uses a quality epoxy primer to seal the raw steel back up. Another thing to note about painting the front of any car. Less is always more and a top shelf clear will always have a better chance of staying chip free.
