Thx for your input and pics. Prob going black on the grill. The bumpers and cladding are Fusion Satin Black, I may try gloss black on the grill.

I think thatll look good. If you dont like the gloss take thinner to it and try flat black. I used restoleum semi flat so it was a bit of both gloss and flat. Also I am planning on doing roofrack/mirrors if you do that post pics I would like to see how it came out

I used the Krylon Fusion Black Satin (I primed first with Rust-Oleum) on my cladding & Rust-Oleum Black Semi-Gloss on my rims.

Before/During-


After-


Since this picture I also slightly tinted the taillights with VHT. (I'll take another pic tomorrow of the back once it gets light outside)
The black cladding looks a LOT better IMO

Finsihed painting the grill Gloss Back Fusion just an hour ago. I did not re-install it, just rested it in place for a quick pic.

It's tough to clean, thinking of coating over with rustoleum flat.

My cladding with Krylon Fusion is starting to wear in spots that have seen scratches or the splashing of little rocks on dirt roads.

Some great cladding pics here, like the semi-flat look. I'd like to try this, but don't want to make it an annual project because it comes off.

Any idea which one of these products is most durable???

I used to use Rustoleum BBQ Black on engines, headers, exhausts, and just general painting. It's between flat and gloss such that dirt doesn't stick and there is no gloss, just a slight sheen, and durable. Anyone used this?
