Duplicolor Rattle Cans ???

I like the look of color matched bumpers.

I’m about to install a “new” fresh out of the box black textured bumper but I’d like to have it “Silver” like my rig is.

I’ve checked prices and can “rattle can” if for about 1/3 the cost of having it painted at a local body shop.

My question is, has anyone ever painted a new bumper with rattle cans? (Not same color as original)

Can I expect the paint to adhere to the powder coat?

I fully expect to touch up, or repaint every so often regardless if I leave black or paint silver, so I’m not overly concerned about that.

I just don’t want to start a project that is known to not work out.

I did buy one can of “my” color and did some tests for “match”.
I’m cool with that result.

Just need some input from someone that’s tried this.

Thanks in advance y’all.

This is the look I’m liking.
And I’m thinking that I would do the fenders as well, when I get to purchase some.

Maybe next to black Silver is about the most difficult colors to match. I know this from first hand experience with having parts painted to match on my old bmw. No rattle can will come close. With my anvil '14, my custom rattle can was not even close to it. Furthermore, I saw the swatches that the painter had for mine and my anvil was in between each color. Honestly, if would and should not cost that must to make a painter match the color and you'd be way more satisfied.

If you are going to Duplicolor, be sure to use a VERY light sand/scuff pad, so any gloss to your powder-coating is roughed up. Then use compressed air to blow off all of the dust. Then clean/degrease the surface. Then paint several light misting coats. Good luck.
