Black plastidip on tuxedo black truck

I'm wanting to plastidip some of the chrome on my 13 f350 platnium. How does te plastidip with glossifer look compared to the tuxedo black paint?

I've never used the glossifier. But the good thing, I'd you don't like it, peel it off. I say, do it and see if you like it...

I just did mine this weekend but didnt do the glossifier, I'm sure I could go back and gloss it but I like the flat. Other option was to paint the grill to match but I'll roll like this for now.

I personally like flat black. But just like what asian195 said, you can easily remove it if you don't like the outcome.

Cost isn't too terrible on grilles. I swapped a guy on CList my chrome for his XL grille. FREE.
KR bumpers $275.

Paint for all the above. $150 but brother paid it for Dec. 25.

I don't think it clashes. I would prefer to paint color match but mine is a lease so I don't care that much to invest the $. All the chrime was too much though lol.

I did the same to my tuxedo black, but the the entire grill was chrome. Sprayed the center bars and the side c's. the plasti dip is a flat black and really doesn't match the tuxedo black at all. It actually cheapened the look of the grill. Easy fix. Peeled right off. I left the side c's black though. It blends with the black backing in the grill.
