Exclamation Plastidip?

I think i'm going to go for a matte black grille, and i've seen quite a few posts on here about this plastidip?

Can you buy this stuff in the UK from shops or am i going to have to order this stuff in?

Cheers, Kyle.

Thats different stuff - plastidip is designed to be removable, but still resilient. Plastikote is just a paint designed to coat without the need for a primer, and is not easily removed!

Could be good for wheels. I might try on the one that needs a refurb anyway. Or is it not suitable?

I would have thought it fine on wheels. I've used some on outdoor metal work and it's stood up well the elements.
