    looks really good OP, some like the chrome and some dont. I am not a huge fan of chrome but it does work with little bit here and there.
    I got some plastidip I might give it a go. You are right...it peels off no problem and its fairly durable.

    Re: Plastidip 2013 SRX w/ Pictures

    I just used it on my Dodge Dakota wood grain radio bezel. Plasti dipped it black. 4 coats. Then 4 coats of gloss. My question is does it ever lose the "sticky" feeling or is it really feel like wet rubber even after completely drying? I keep remembering to tell myself that it can peel right off if i screw it up or want to change color or revert back to original

    It's not for me, but it's your SRX and your money and if it suits you then "right on"

    Hey @adamjeeps. Couple thoughts on your post. Yes the sticky feel will go away after a couple solid weeks of drying. Have to be careful not to scratch it during this drying phase or it will be permanent.

    The gloss may give you headaches. Matte plastidip peels easily. As soon as you add gloss it will peel in small little flakes instead of a nice steady peel. Might be a big pain in the you know. If people want a glossy look don't use plastidip it takes away from a lot of benefits of plastidip.

    I think they did a great job, also being you're wise enough to choose a Cadillac, means you will more than stand out in a crowd.

    Thanks for the info. I was debating not using the gloss but it was my first time trying the dip process and wanted to see how it looked. I have read and can confirm that the black does not really get very "glossy" unless I didn't do it the best way. It still looks great and was a cheap way to get rid of the ugly wood radio bezel (the only wood trim in the entire truck, why Dodge used it, I don't understand).

    It's kind of addictive, I am now looking at everything and wondering if i should plastidip it

    I like it. The dealership has a blacked out one for an additional 1400K. What a waste of money. The GM black paint sucks and to have more of it and pay for it, hell-no.

    I think it looks good, I did a similar thing on my 9-4x

    Except I used a Metallic over it

    @quantex: 1400K? As in 1.4 million? LOL!

    @others:
    I find it strange that so many of you are interested in blacking out your vehicles, yet for years everyone screamed at GM for using bland black/grey plastic for bumpers, rockers, etc on the cheaper models - cheap cheap cheap! everyone yelled. Now everyone wants black plastic vehicles?

    As an alternative suggestion to you, my neighbour just had his pickup done with the pebble-finished black bed liner on the rocker panels, bumpers, and wheels.

    Re: Plastidip 2013 SRX w/ Pictures

    I am an old man and I like it. Thing is, I also have tons of experience with plastidip and have concluded that anywhere I may need to touch or dry, it's not for me. It loses grippiness, but still traps lint, dust, dirt, etc to much to my liking. I was hot on Plastidip, but not so much now. I encourage people to try it, and see if they like the look for a few weeks. If they do, then peel it off and get it done right, permanently. The other use I have for it is to apply a layer of clear plastidip (NOT THE GLOSSIFYER), just clear plastidip to the front end of my vehicles before the winter like a clear bra - then peel it off in the Spring. Been doing this for 2 years and have far less chips, nicks than I would otherwise from salt trucks etc.
