Plasti-Dip eyelids?

Noticed my friend had plasti-dip eyelids on his scion tc, and i thought it was a pretty cool idea. Anyone done it before?
I'd like to go over the parts i bolded below
< OO [llllll}{llllll] OO >

I've seen vinyl wraps, and i think this would be cheaper/more easily un-done.

I'm guessing it would come out very similar to these in matte black?

I feel like for something like that, vinyl would work better. My rims are plasti-dipped and They don't look bad I don' think but on the headlights you'd be able to tell. I think the matte wouldn't look good on it. There was a member on these forums selling amounts for cheap, interior trim was $34 i think which is more than enough to do eyelids look for him.

I personally hate the look of eyelids on e90's. But if you end up trying it out and don't like you could obviously remove it.
