I don't think the plasti will damage anything. The paint's already scratched so what harm could it do and if it gets dinged by someone opening their door just peel of and redo. What color plasti were you going to use? Nevermind about color saw your truck info. but the plasti will be more of a flat black compared to the gloss finish of the factory finish.

True. I just need something that makes it black again. Don't mind the flat black part. I just hate seeing it cleaned and I see white scratches everywhere. And I've tried scratch removers and polish a little bit of rubbing compound and its still there.

The Krylon Fusion works well too. I did the top two steps on the rear bumper. They were ash grey and really rough. Came out looking really well. Also, you can pick that up in flat, satin(what I chose), and gloss. But since this is paint, 90% prep, 10% application.

Any pics of what yours turned out like? Mine are going to get some TLC this summer

Dipyourcar.com has gloss and all sorts of close stuff to change the look of PlastiDip.

For those who asked to see what the bumper panels I did with the Krylon Fusion look like... here ya go. Put the paint on back in November, on Thanksgiving day. I didn't do the best prep I could've, and they still came out looking pretty good. The plan is to do the rest of all the plastic like this, in warmer weather...View attachment 25994
