Paint the lower gold two tone portion black?

I want to paint the lower golden two tone portion of the truck black along with the fender flares and bumpers. Or a cheaper way is to just use the vinyl wrap material?? Then I wouldn't have to sand, paint, clear coat ect.

Here's a pic of my rig


I'm going the blacked out look, just did my headlights- completely black except the projector shrouds. I think this would look good. I do not want to rhino line them so please do not suggest that. Lol, not a fan of that.

Not sure you would want to do just straight black. However, maybe black that blends into the white so it's not so drastic?

Na- that's the old 90's paint style. Fugly! It'd be the same as the good is now, just black. I'm gunna look into buying the wrap material and doing it myself- I've laid several decals in my time.. I'll post an update when I figure out where to buy this stuff for a good price

personally I prefer the gold and white to black and white, but I am a bit biased. A good friend of mine did what you are describing to his pickup and he wishes he hadnt now (he painted). At least with the wrap you will be able to remove it if you dont like it.

Im working on a pic for you now. He said it contrasted way to hard in his opinion. He wishes he would have done the graphite color like the all white Fx4's have on there fender flares.

Thank man! I figured since I have the blacked out theme going I might as well do that black, but like your buddy said maybe a graphite color would be a better contrast look with the black... Wish I was good with photo shop!

I did my buddies f150. It was white and gold and we plasti dipped all the tan, bumpers fender flares and rockers. He bought machined wheels and it just didn't look right tan and it looks awesome now. I will try to post some pics. We did it last fall and a year later none of it is peeling off and it looks really good. We may do one layer on top this fall just to freshen it up but it's holding up surprisingly well for something that takes no sanding and peels off if ya don't like it.
