    instead of getting the inserts for the rear bumper cover, i was thinkin about masking off the area and painting it black. i am also going to do the lower area just above the exhaust tips where the oval section is (look at pic for referance)

    should i just use a duplicolor rattle can? i think it would come out ok as long as i prep properly (sand the area where i am painting)

    what do you guys think?

    No... it won't look as well as a professional produced insert. The eye will see imperfection. Get the inserts... only $20 or so...

    My inserts are white to match my top but stainless steel would look really good!

    The BlackChrome inserts from SSinserts.com are really nice but cost alot of coin.
