    Plasti Dipped my Chrome All black

    So i thought i give this Plasti Dip stuff a try on all the chrome on my car. Still have the front end to do, but so far did the side chrome trim around the windows, air dam on the front quarters, and everything on the rear including the gray plastic on the bottom. And finally did the rims. I think it makes my silver calipers pop a little more
    The stuff is pretty neat. You basically over spray whatever you want done, let it dry and peel off the excess. Some spots with tight seems you have to cut first to avoid peeling the whole thing off.
    With a bit of practice and lots of YouTube vids, it woks pretty nicely.

    Lemme know youre thoughts, its just peels off if i dont like it

    Very Nice. I've been looking for White/Blk cars. I like the scheme and it has a nice street appeal. Edgy/Dark yet elegant. \

    Well played Sir... well played.

    it works very well on emblems and things that are raised. The bigger the height difference the
    better

    I plasti dipped most of my chrome almost a year ago, and after all sorts of weather and a ton of car washes, it still looks as good as it did the day I finished it. I am not sure, but this stuff might be magical!

    I used 4 cans on the side and rear chrome. and i think 2 on the rims. I should have gone a little heavier. 3 cans on 4 rims would have been perfect
