I did the plasti dip on my grills first, to see if I would like it. PD chipped and didn't look all that great. It was good to just get an idea of how it would look.

Just because it's cheap doesn't mean it won't work just as good...

It's been lasting me for 2 years knock on wood. $5 vs. $65..hmm. Plus if it ever fades there's enough in the can for another respray.
