That's cool, post more! I was just thinking of doing the same thing! I was going to do a vinyl wrap on everything chrome and just get a black grill, but the Plasti-Dip idea came up...

I think it'd look better body color on the outer shell and plasti-dipped in the center. But that's just me

It look cool. Do you think I could do all my shocks? I want to do them in red like the truck. The factory white is rusting over.

plasti dip is an addiction once you try and it and get a handle on how to do it right its pretty easy. you can see how things will look temporarily or permanently this stuff will always peel right off i did my wife's chrome emblems on her Nissan and they have held up for the past 2 years, this stuff is very durable i have used my pressure washer on it and it stays on no problem. they are coming out with more and more colors all the time. i did use the glossifier on this grill but it didn't turn out as glossy as i would have liked but the beauty of it is i can peel it off and start over any time i want!
