Does anyone have feedback on how well this mod lasts before it starts peeling off?

Ive seen this done in black on other threads but I can't find black stained glass paint. Anyone know where to find black stained glass paint or what colors to combine to get black instead of faggy brown/green/grey??

Cant you just use black chrome paint? I believe that is the effect you are trying to accomplish.

Perfect suggestion. I found a chrome shadow kit from rustolem at a local store, it is resistant to something like 225 degrees. Perfect, Im going to try a yellow and black two tone paint job on it. My 325XI is black on black I think black inside of a yellow ring would look sic.

Looks great! Too bad my color is kinda rare. JleviSW said they don't do my color.
