One can is enough yes. The more coats you put on the more build up and the easier it is to peel off. 4-6 coats is good. No less than 3. First coat needs to be a 50% transparency from the chrome to the plasti dip. So a light first coat. Then wait 5-8 minutes and do a second heavier coat. Then so on and so forth. It is a very sticky consistency so it is a little bit more forgiving with drips (:

Well I took off the entire grille. Wiped it down a couple good times, and from there I masked off around the cross peaces. Leaving everything clipped together. Then sprayed it like that. I masked off around the bars a little on the outside leaving myself a natural break around all four sections. So when I went to peel the masking tape off I would peel the access plasty dip off with it. It will naturally break along the seem on the inside of the crosses. Make sure to get good 50% transparency on the first pass, and let it dry. The after that get a good 3-4 more coats on after that. Getting all the angles as the bars are kind of hard to get with the angles they are at.

I really don't know what they are going for, but I was thinking around 75 plus shipping. I can't send/reply to a PM yet because I am too new to the forum but you can shoot me a text message if you like 617-852-6896.
