Question Blacking out chrome etc

I am looking to black out the chrome and some paint on the front bumper, I keep reading about plasti-dip but it seems to be unavailable in Canada, any other products that work? You other Canadians....I found a vinyl/plastic paint at Canadian Tire, anyone tried that?

i wouldn't paint it. do it like me, take it to the shop and let it wrap it with vinyl . i just paid like USD$120, it looks like oem and you can remove it anytime!

Plasti-dip is USD$5-10 & Plasti-dip is also removable.
If you want I can pick up a can of Plasti-dip for you. But the shipping to Canada is gonna cost more than the can itself.

Vinyl has more reflective shine, Plasti-dip is dull matte look.
Depends on your budget & taste.

I just used 1.5" black vinyl tape from the auto parts store, it looked good and held up just fine. It probably took all of 15 minutes to put on.

Sry, I lost my paypal account along time ago.
Ok I cant accept Canadian money exchange rate is different. lol. jk.

You know what, once I've saved some money, maybe by next month, I'll just send you a couple of cans. Hows that? Pm me with your info. Name Address etc.

Unless you gotta to have it RIGHT NOW. IF you can do online bill pay to me.
I can ship it to you the next day & you'll get it however long the shipping takes (ie 5-7days)

Either way pm me we can exchange info.
