I've personally used high thermal matte black paint that is used to paint headers (ultra durable, I've tried a bunch of them)
I sanded the chrome parts prior to applying the coats
I applied like bajillion coats
It all lasted me about 20k miles, which isn't bad at all, considering that 90% of my driving is on highway with speeds over 70 mph. Only recently it started chipping a little bit.
The point of Plasti-Dip is that you dont have to prep.
It is not a permamnent thing. Its can be reversed.
If you want it to last forever and dont care about going back to chrome, then paint it.
