Front tow hooks

Purchased a pair of front tow hooks a while ago on vacation in the US.
Finally getting around to fitting them, Is the black coating on them from the factory ok to paint over? Would like to have them body colour (Bright silver) to fit in well with the stainless mesh grilles or would they be better blasted and powder coated silver?

Re: Front tow hooks

Definitely blast and powder coat. I put mine on also. But my truck is black. Good luck with the install. The front plastic needs tos be pulled apart after you remove the screws and gromits. Unnerving but necessary. Also , I had to buy longer bolts to work, I saw other postings too that had that issue. Be prepared to have to go and buy new bolts in the middle of your install when the factory one fall short. Maybe your package has the longer ones. Good luck. 3 hour install. JFC
