Touched up my bumper pads (56k beware!)

My bumper pads were scratched and dirty from a rusty bumper swap. I used Bumper Coating, I'm afraid it was alittle too dark for my taste, but it does look refreshed. Any thoughts?

It's funny, it matches the black side mirrors. I'm thinking of taking the rear bumper pad off and doing the same. I could throw up the original picture, I'll edit the post in a few.

I dont think the paint would hold up on the rear pad, well mine wouldn't because I always step on it.

Ha, maybe I won't step on it, but I don't promise I won't sit on it, wait isn't that want tailgates are for? I'm new the whole pick-a-me-up truck business.

Oh the valence? I'm working on repainting that, plus I'm tweaking it a bit.

I've always in the past (at different forums) have put warnings for more than one picture, mainly it's too prevent issues with 56k users. Nothing wrong with being safe.
