Mine is not quite black, it is charcoal grey, but will give you an idea.

Not on the car yet... but I had them powdercoated flat black. Along with my door handles.
I'm going 90% blacked out on trim. Keeping the bumpers chrome

Did you paint the back up light housings, and what did do to prep them for paint?

Plastidip. I was going to paint them since the wiring wouldn't allow for powdercoat... but I couldn't bring myself to sand brand new parts down to primer paint and clear. The plastidip can be redone, touched up, or removed easily so I went with that.

I actually plasti-dipped my rear window trim. I liked how it looked, but never got around to doing the rest of the car. I also worried about spraying the locks. :-/

You might try a blackpermanent marker Sharpie, you may have to touch up the locks periodically, but it's better than gumming them up.

I used flat spray paint on the lock outer ring. Marker on key hole. I was planning on blacking the window trim but not sure how.. Powdercoating might be harsh on the flimsy trim. Plastidip to the rescue!

If you are going to paint chrome or stainless, use a self etching primer first.

Chrome is the one surface that plastidip seems to struggle with.
