    Hi Guys,
    I decided to dechrome my front bumper and rear and also grill. But what is best, cheapest and easiest way to do it vinyl wrap, plastic dip or paint?
    Thanks

    Man going through @Roman is about the cheapest most cost effective way to do it. No downtime from the truck if it's your daily driver, and you can sell your take offs and replenish some funds. I'm speaking for the grill tho. The caps I've seen alot of ppl powdercoat but apparently theres a new company on here making covers to color match. Might be worth a try:)

    Maybe just order color matched parts and be done with it.

    Well it’s all depends on your budget. I bought my own parts from Toyota and have a local body shop painted.

    Platinum parts are color matched if you’re part replacing. Cheaper I’d look into the bumpershelz for the bumpers and @Roman for color match grille surround.

    @smslavin haha if I trade in. I will buy black beast. I had black Camaro Ss before. And it was very hard to keep it clean so I choose white tundra.
