    Yep, I agree with the Rolling Stones: Paint It Black.

    Chrome Wreath. The wreath is officially part of the logo, so make it stand out, make it chrome.

    You posted a picture on Post #22 that shows the chrome wreath on the black grill. Take another look as that may help you decide.

    Light coats, and be sure to shoot from every angle for best coverage.
    and put cardboard behind the grill to protect your RAD
    Have fun

    Shmiddy - clean looking CTS. Nice work.

    This plasti-dip thread was exactly what I was looking for. New to the forum - new to Cadillac family. Will be waiting for the spring to black out my chrome - damn Canadian winters.

    Where is best place to find cans of this stuff??? CT? Or online/states?

    We cant buy from their website here in canada short of shipping it to the border and going across so do a search on your local websites like kijiji. Thats where i found "my guy"
    If feels like a drug deal, i hand him the cash, he hands me a box with whatever plasti dip i've asked for haha
