so glad i found this site!!! so my rear bumper trim on my 07 jeep compass started looking like crap faded chemical stained ect. so i decided to re paint it. preped with adhesion promoter then gave it 3 coats of trim paint. personally i think it looks great.. now i came across the silver bumper piece avaliable on the full loaded compasses. i thought it would look good black. the piece only cost me 50$:) but i don't know if im sold on it i need opinions. im thinking it would look ok when i take my advertisement off the window. i need your suggestions. im going for a blacked out look. the first pic is the before of the trim

It looks ok but it is missing something. I would have to agree with CL and FFL. I've gone black on all my accessories as well so if you're looking for some ideas I have various pieces on mine already.

Like the black, looks good, and as far as highlighting the Compass name/logo, since you have the khaki metallic, which was the color I was fond of, go to your dealer, pick up the touch-up paint, and with some time and patience, inlay the letters with the paint, that way you keep with the black, Compass stands out and it still matches your Jeep! Just a thought....:)
