You're lucky because one of the best installers in the country is right in Philly. They're called Kustom Dips and they are really setting the bar as far as custom colors and application of the plasti-dip. The prices aren't too bad either!

Honestly if you hae access to FlexiDip, which is Rustoleum's version of Plasti Dip, I would use that. It was recently released at Home Depot and the results are much smoother. It comes out like primer, nice and flat. No roughness at all like Plasti Dip.

PLasti-Dip is pretty cool and easy to use. I did my rims flat black and they look great. I'm now trying the anthracite metallic and will post pics soon. Don't be shy, go for it, you can always peel it off, but it's better is the coat is thicker if you are going to peel, like 2-3 coats minimum.
