Painted rear bumper part?

Hey, has anyone with a bright colored 7.5 gen sedan painted that little center bottom part of their rear bumper black? I was thinking about doing it and just wanted to see how it looks.

Example:

Just get some plastic dip and if you don't like it just peel it off

I think it would look good.

I don't know if this helps at all but I did it to my old coupe a while back. I have a black one now so I didn't do it again. Here is the only picture I have of the back:



It looked okay. More of just a fun, easy, and extremely cheap thing to do.

try the plastic dip.. you should have good results if you know how to use it.. you have to take off the tape before the palstic dip drys up.. or you will have to cut around the whole area you cover with tape..
