I tens to disagree with the blue cars look like sh!t with black grilles. I have the mystic blue metallic with black kidney grilles and mine looks great. But what i do agree with is def return the plasti-dip and look into the other stuff that was mentioned.

I would be scared of the exact same thing, and the end result actually looks pretty cool. How does it look in border areas like the inside of the door jambs, under the hood, trunk, etc.? I always check for epic fail of overspray on the exhaust tip first! lol
