Done that to all my chrome. Look at my build thread which can be found in my signature as I have several pictures.

Plasti-dipp can easily be removed too incase it is not something that you like in the future.

The white plasti dip is not the same color as the white paint.

I originally did my rear emblem white but changed it to black. Not sure what white plasti dipped bumpers would look like, but I'd love to find out!

Black wheels are bad ass.

Here's the emblem for reference. The plasti dip is much whiter.

hmm, I would've thought that the white plastidip would be darker.

Was there every any luck on using the white plasti dip on the bumper? I'm interested to see how it looks because I've thought about doing that to mine as well.

I've seen trucks on the road with dipped white bumpers and even bottom trim and you can definitely tell. It is much whiter like the pic Radak04 posted. All you gotta do is spend $6 a can at Home Depot or Lowe's and DIY. It peels right off if you don't like it. I wouldn't pay a shop to plasti dip unless it was an entire vehicle...
