It just doesn't seem to be that popular over here,even plastidip.co.uk don't stock the black,if you find a stockist let me know.

I must've bought their last stocks of black aerosol - I got mine from plastidip.co.uk. And the glossifier too. Need nearly as much glossifier as vinyl spray!

no i dont think you can peel it off. plastidip is probably better if you really want to know that it can be peeled off.

i just got fed up of trying to get some plastidip and thought i'd just use plastikote, i knew i would like the matte black grilles

It's a glossifier you apply over the matt plasti dip to make it gloss

yep. all i had to do was to remove the grille, and then remove the outer chrome part. only prep i did was to wash the chrome in warm water with a little fairy liquid.

the first coat you put on will look wrong but the more you add the better. keep to thin coats
