I am not a fan of chrome so I decided to go flat black.

You should go over the black with rustoleum spray bedliner. Check my profile pics. It will be more durable then the paint.

Looks good. I did the same thing. Layed a good coat of rust stop and covered with hurculiner. Took that stupid Crome piece off and trying to sell it for more small parts.

Mine was not chrome but tan. I flat blacked it because my jeep is sprayed in black bedliner. Like the looks of black alot better than chrome even though i have diamond plate on the sides. lol.
