Why don't you just paint that section of your rear bumper black?

Plastidip would be a safer route so you can peel it off later.
You can also try doing a 3M vinyl wrap, like flat black or CF if you're feeling fancy.
Otherwise, Duplicolor trim paint is a good choice.

Thank you much for the information I appreciate it . I like the idea of 3M vinyl wrap only because in the future I would like to vinyl wrap the hood of my vehicle . I think it would look interesting with the WR blue .
