Ok i started to black out my FJ. I did rear bumper this weekend. after much reading on here i want to say i used the Rustoleum satin black as recomended and it was wrong. It was too shiney and didnt match the factory black plastic. So i sanded all that off and tried duplicolor black bumper cover paint. it matched well. However it was not compatable with the satin black and bubbled up as it dried. so i resanded again!!!! and the 3rd time came out pretty good and matches the rest.

Nice job Bronco. I just did the same to my AG, and used the Duplicolor also. Turned out great. Just FYI, I used their bumper paint for the bumper parts, and their trim paint for the mirrors. They both turned out great I think. The all black just looks great against the AG I think. It made a world of difference. The truck just looks a lot more aggressive. I also added a black out hood decal from Amaesing. I did buy the TT grille and door handles though. Got them from Sparks in SC.

I just blacked out my rear bumper the other day. Also use duplicolor bumper paint. I think it is a perfect match. Mirrors are up next and I will be done!

Hey just FYI, you might want to consider the Duplicolor trim paint for the mirrors. It seems to be a bit smoother finish than the bumper paint, and it just looks perfect IMO. Not too shiny, not too dull, just right.

I saw your previous post about that. Sounds pretty good! Do you have any pics with the trim paint?

Did you remove the bumper to paint, or just covered the surrounding parts and sprayed?
