Default Bumper Painting

So I was just wondering... I plan on painting my bumpers in the next day or two and I have already bought black but I noticed when I was at Pep Boys the other day duplicolor makes a silver colored bumper coating... Should I go ahead and just continue with the black like my original plan or does anyone think that the silver that duplicolor makes would match my original color? Any opinions/thoughts would be appreciated.

Hard to tell that it'll match, so it's your call.

Honestly, I doubt it will. Have to take into consideration that your car's color isn't anywhere near -New-.

x-2 what Kawizx9r said , i saw a cruiser today that had painted his bumper silver,it did not look good .my buddy has an o1 and he painted his bumper black and it really looks great the paint was made for plastic and he got it at pep boys,it has held up for him for 3 years now
It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile,
and one nut to scatter it all over the road

I'm doing mine in the spring and going with black, but then my Woody's black.....I'd check like they also said to see how close the silver goes with your PT...If you look on the Exterior Fourm the first "Sticky" on the top of the page goes in great detail on paint them...
