I painted mine a few months ago. I do a lot of hwy driving and the rock chips are mounting up. The silver shines tremendously against the black once chipped... I assume plastic dip would do the same. Just something to consider if you drive on the hwy. I'll be switching to tt when funds allow. With the exception of the bumper wings, I'd like to get the bumpers and plastic body trim linex'd one day.. Need a second job I suppose.
