Painting Mach 1 Chin Spoiler To Match? (Other Q's & Reps Inside)

I sold my 99/01 Cobra bumper and got an OEM Mach 1 front bumper.
The bumper is going to be painted Silver to match my car (obviously). The chin spoiler is a little rough from some bumps. I don't really want to leave it how it is, and I don't think they'd up-charge me to paint it the same color as the rest of the bumper. I think the grill delete is definitely going to be silver as well. Thoughts? Bad idea? Open to suggestions.

Also- so I do not have to make another thread for this; would there be a way to "fix" blemishes in the chin spoiler? It's OEM, so I'm not sure what it's made of, but it's heavier duty than the aftermarket ones. It is almost stretched out and faded in a spot about an inch wide where the PO hit something.

Thanks in advance, guys. Reps for those who are helpful.

Grille delete area paint to match may look pretty good. I personally don't like paint to match Mach lips.

Op I was going to silver a
plasti dip the chin spoiler as well. I can't tell if paint match would be too much. The plasti dip comes out flat so I think it would be a nice contrast

Looks pretty good I'd say. I like unpainted better though.

Would probably look better with paint matched grille delete.

I drag my chin spoiler everytime I leave my driveway. I've thought about painting it body color but with how flexible the plastic is, I figured it would eventually crack and flake off. I do have some scrapes on mine. I was going to hit the high spots with some sandpaper and then shoot some semi flat black rattle can over the lip - maybe even dip it for a little bit of texture.

I cracked my cowl panel a while back. After repairing it with some epoxy and sanding, I hit it with some plasti dip. It looks like new.

I think it'd look good with the grille delete matching but I'd personally leave the chin black I don't think it'd look bad but I think the black looks better just my opinion.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'll probably go black, but the painted to match isn't half bad. I just thought it might be original or different.

the only problem I see with the paint, is that chin spoilers are always hitting stuff (cause they are so low) so the paint would get scratched pretty fast

Black chin is a lot easier to touch up. A little rough sand and some flat black paint and they look great again. Color not so much.

I wouldn't paint it unless you're 100% sure you won't be scraping it on anything. Those things flex and get scuffed quite easily.

Ok, y'all talked some good sense into me. More reps when I'm on a comp. later!

Maybe I could have them paint it satin black?

I wouldn't paint it. That thing is too flexible and too low to the ground. I went through the same thing as you and decided against it.

iMO don't paint it. Looks cooler when it stands out as a different color than the body.
