Mini Cooper BLACKED OUT look.. Advice

Hey guys so I have the Mini Cooper r50 52 plate. The car is black and I have applied a black grill to the car. There is now 2 silver plastic covers underneath the fog lights of my car. There is also a long black cover on the rear of the car. Can these be removed? If so what is underneath.. If they cannot I am considering buying plastidip to spray them black.

Thanks

hi , all the chrome bits on bumpers can be removed ,carefully prise them of ,its just clips on the chrome covers slotting into the bumper, I used a paint scraper with a heavy tape on the edge so as not to damage the paint on the bumper, hope this helps, the car above is mine, I also painted the steel mesh grill to keep the black look, yours looks really good as well ,did you do the stripes yourself? looks great, hope this helps
