    I have a Crystal Black '13 Honda Civic EX-L and I want to black out all the chrome trimmings it has around the car. But I don't want to use plasti dip cause I want it glossy like the car paint. What do you guys suggest for me to use for this project. Thanks.

    I mean you COULD use their Glossifier. Otherwise, either remove the emblems or mask around them when spraying.

    Vinyl works great, it's just a lot harder to install perfectly than a quick plasti spray. If you're good with vinyl go for it. The nice thing with doing the plasti first is that you can see how it looks and decide if you like the look enough to buy, cut, and install vinyl. Spend a few minutes masking everything well and the plasti job can look very good with minimal cleanup after.

    I don't want to do the rims. Just the chrome trimmings. You think it will be still a lot of work? And also wouldn't it last longer with vinyl.

    Either will have some wear over time. I don't think one will really be a lot better or worse. Stone chips will probably show less with plasti
