I listed these in the UK section, but thought it might be better here aswell.

I have used Plasti Dip to convert my chrome grill and brushed aluminium window trim into black.

nice, I did my grills and they're still holding up strong after a year which I didn't expect.. and I just sprayed it on un-expertly. it would be nice if it just stayed on there as I'm too lazy to do it again lol
