Vinyl, I think that if you like it you should take the Vinyl off and use the Plasti-Dip or Bedliner. I don't think the latter two are removable Matte would be better though for sure.

Well, I just sprayed an old grill and it came out pretty good and smooth.

How reversible would plasti-dip be on a bumper?

You need to do the plastic grille in whatever You do the bottom of the bumper in so they match

Plasti-dip for now for a test run. Came out pretty good. Took me a long time to prep the area correctly to follow the lines. Well worth it. I ended up getting a nice tan as well. My friend is not replying for me to get the pics!!! ARG. I really want to put DSLR pics and not 3 crappy pics
