yeah you can get a lot out of a single can. i have done those grilles, my badges, let people use it on their cars. and had someone use it to spray "RACECAR" on the side of a rental. and i still have a decent amount of my original can left.

in short, a little goes a long way.

you can also get other colors online, but it looks like the only one you can find in stores is black.

Possibly a stupid question here but can you paint over the PlastiDip without damaging the paint underneath? That way you can paint anything any color that you want but still be able to remove it later. Plus you could use a much glossier paint.

actually you can do that. i saw some guy do it on another forum where he plasti dipped the chrome trim on the inside of the car then painted it will like a brushed aluminum i think. but anyway ive seen it done an it looked good and didnt effect anything in the long run
