I wanna paint my 98 front steel bumper

Im going for a glossy black, if not matte black. Anyone know of a good paint for that. I want to go for a all black "murdered out" theme.

sounds like you got it solved but i went with duplicolor wheel enamel, never flaked or chipped, not overly glossy but def not matte or satin .

You have any pictures of the way it turned out because I want to compare. So far the bed liner looks great in the picture but if I can still get some gloss it would match my painted grille

I would be interested in buying the grille from you when you swap them out. i need a new one because mine is cracked and i want a black so it works perfect!
