Default Question about bumper. New here!

Hey guys, I'm new here and am wondering about the plastic piece above the chrome bumper. I will attach image.





My questions is can I order that piece in Mineral Gray or should I just get it wrapped? Any information would be helpful. I am sandblasting and powdercoating both bumpers gloss black and I need to do something about this aweful matte black plastic thing. Thanks!

If you are speaking about the plastic honeycomb grille, you can rough up the surface & paint it, it would be quite a job though
Some powder coating shops will do powder coating on plastics, others don't want to be bothered

It does not take too much work to remove the grille, i believe maybe 4 screws & some clips, be careful when working with the clips, they may break, another member that has done it before, will be able to tell you more

No that grille is an aftermarket I put on. I'm talking about the plastic black piece right under it and on top of the chrome bumper. Looks like the only options is to have it wrapped or painted though. And thanks

It can be painted to match. They only come in black.

Look to trade someone your chrome bumpers for their painted ones....
These bumpers are expensive and it wouldn't matter to you , heck the chrome ones should bring you extra cash and they will be harder to sand. Make a few bucks and hook someone up! Wish you were closer to me, I have a buddy who would pay to get those on his truck!

So that black plastic piece on top of the chrome is part of the bumper? I got prices to powder coat both bumpers for 350$.
