I just went to Home Depot and picked up a can of the black spray. At some point this weekend I'm going to put a little on my hood to create two more flat black stripes (on the outer lines of the hood). If all goes well, I may just paint my winter wheels with it!

I want to say chipping is a non issue, the stuff is a rubber that sticks to the surface you paint. (Provided it was clean at the start) So I would say it's rather durable and elasticy, and since people have put them on wheels and front bumpers without anything negative to say about it is a plus. That and it's CHEAP, so even if it messes up down the road it's not too hard to pull it off and fix it

They make other colors but you have to buy online. Home Depot and Lowe's only carry black if they even carry it (some don't)

You may have a problem doing that. If you try to tape off an area with painters tape, the Plastidip will stick to it and lift of the surface you sprayed. The only way around that is to score the edge with a razor knife. And you don't want to do that. it will not stick if it's still wet. But you need multiple coats for coverage.
