These are the ones you need to get...there are different products that Plasti Dip sells so make sure you pick up the right ones:

I really doesn't chip as easily as people think. I did my front grills last year and hasn't chipped yet. Also did part of my bumper and left it on for a week with no chips. I think its worth a shot.

I felt for under $30 and a few hours of labor...it's definitely worth it since you can just remove everything if it looks like crap. I have watched videos for the window trim and it really doesn't look too bad. The worst part looks like the prep work and the clean up. The only difference in the method that the guy uses in the dipyourcar.com video is that I will spray the outer edges first and then spray over the trim. That way I won't miss the edges. That's how I painted my old integra wheels back in the day. Get the edges and then work on the easy parts.

I've been playing with it on a spare wheel for my moped. Even with NO prep work on top of the horrible peeling paint job before with bumps and crap all over the wheel it was still easier than I thought. I am going to do this at some point to the CSLs. It comes off fine but I feel like it'll hold up just fine with 4-5 coats like I have on the moped wheel. Took a bit of work to get started, but nothing crazy. I don't think it's likely to peel on its own and if did it would be incredibly easy to add a new coat.
