Truck Bed Coated My Bumpers

I have the same color truck and my front bumper the paint is chipping off and is starting to look dumb. I've been thinking of painting it black but not sure what paint would be good to make it look sort of professionally done.

should help prevent scratches but I would be afraid it would start to chip over time.

should have pounded out the dents first, looks MUCH better than before though. What kind of bedliner is that? i would put some sort of clear coat on it because it will start to fade and peel if its a cheaper liner

i use the same stuff and it looks nothing like that.........except when i get impatient and throw heavy layers on without waiting long enough between coats.

that's way too glossy/smooth.

It has some texture to it and I wanted it glossy...granted it is not gonna be used like a truck bed so i figured just for looks on a bumper it came out pretty darn good IMO
