Default plasti dipping my 1996 grill

so i think i am going to plasti dip my grill idk about you but i really think that the gray paint on thees grills really was a bad call by ford . has any one ever used this stuff before . the main reason i am doing plasti dip and not paint is it is not permanent if you want you can just peel it right off, but i am tolled it holds up pretty well , what do you guys think ?

Why not?!
If you don't like it, all you're out is some time & a couple cans of dip.

Then its a keeper

I have to wash by hand my front bumper, the washer chips the paint off after a few times :/

But I agree on the gray color, I painted all the gray on my truck black
