Hey all,

I just picked up my 2023 Escalade Sport Platinum and I'm getting the PPF done this weekend.

Has anyone vinyled their front bumper like this picture I photoshopped? *Around the fog lamp area; it follows the body line. If not, what are your thoughts?

Thinking of getting it done in gloss black vinyl and having the PPF applied over top.

I haven't done it. On the one hand I like it .. on the other it sort looks like a big cartoon smile. The vinyl def needs to be an almost perfect match to the black trim or I think it'll really stand out in a less than great way. Do it, post back! :D

I think I would have the vinyl put on top of the PPF. I would want a continuous flow of the PPF to paint, not based on anything but my gut.

Hey guys, so here it is! I absolutely love the look.

The shop ended up using gloss black PPF instead of vinyl which is much better IMO. Deeper black and obviously a lot stronger than vinyl; this matches the factory black trim very well.
