ok so i sprayed my grilles today with plastidip. i had to remove the previous plastikote that i put on before, sand it down and added 2 coats of primer. then 8-9 coats of plastidip (overkill i think).

looks really good now, better than the plastikote. will put some pics up during the day. im hoping plastidip wont be affected by chip marks though.

Nothing is good without pics.
Shame that this thread is on page 3, and not a single shot of dipped item.
