Why not just get your local paint shop to paint them. Mine couldn't guarantee how long it would last but £20 painted mine and so far so good.

as you guys know i used Plasti Kote as i got fed up with trying to find Plasti Dip.

Its been a while now and there are visible chip marks on my grille, so i would not recommend Plasti Kote.

I have now ordered Plasti Dip from the website and also some primer just to be safe. Hopefully chip marks will not show now.

naaa...have used plasti dip loads of time before...you dont even need that primer you bout (could have had another can!) just make sure that you wipe down and clean the surface to be sprayed....and then do it in coats..

it may look a little rough when you spray it but youll soon notice in 10 mins that it smoothens out......

ow!!! and i also sprayed my rear spoiler.

thinking of getting a few more cans...might do a black roof!
