almost 2 years. I just received my 2013 Charger at work. The old one was a 2009 that I was issued when I took my new position. That was November 2011. It is still being driven daily on patrol, and they are still matte black. I'll see if I can get a pic when I see the car again.

This product is an epoxy, so once it cures, it's on. I don't know how you would sand chrome or stainless for adhesion without having sanding marks, but I'm sure there's a way. I cleaned the parts I wanted to spray and applied light coats. On the patrol car, I just taped the rear bumper area and sprayed.
