Also, used a few coats of clear on top too.
Hmm. Did you scuff up the chrome before you Plasti-dipped it? If so what grit should I use to scuff? And do you scuff by hand or use a sander?

I suppose even if it didn't turn out good $50 isn't a big loss. My main concern is cold temperatures. I will be working in Yellowstone National Park from April-November and it is usually lows below freezing in April and late Oct-November. It seems like since it is plastic it would shrink/expand and come off.
