Cool Black Grille

Has anyone plasti dipped there grill, and if so did it last? I have the chrome grille and have been converting my truck to the blacked out look, however I tried plasti on the exhaust tips ( 7 ) coats and it didn't hold up at all! Maybe the upstate New York winters!

Just did mine this weekend. But I had my stock wheels dipped for winter and they held up great. Also my badges have been dipped almost a year now.

You probably could however the plasti is a much cheaper alternative if it would hold up and last!
