  DIY - Black Grill / $7 / 10 minutes / (FULLY REVERSIBLE)

Alright this is my first DIY, so forgive me if it is not the greatest.
But let me tell you, in a way this is the best DIY you will find.

First, an introduction to Plasti-Dip.
This is a spray on rubber. It comes in different colors and forms.
You can buy it in...

I did this. Applied probably about 8 coatings. It's starting to peel after a long track day. I'm going to peel it off and reapply. Maybe apply a clear coat to it afterwards. I did do these on my side markers and they turned out great.

Plasti-dip now makes a "glossifier" to add, um, gloss.
