Cool, very interested, can you post pics of your car, especially the window trim?Quite a few people have used this. I have all outside grey or silver parts done, except the wheels, and the thing around the shifter. For me there was a learning curve to getting it right, texture & peel quality. The hardest was the window trim. I'd advise doing those in sections, instead of a whole side at once, and doing quick coats with a moderately wet peel - there's nothing to create a good tear (like on the logos) so tape close and peel wet. Go into the What did you do sticky to see lots of examples. Somebody just did a bunch. I did an ugly old electric guitar and now it looks pretty cool, except for where I lit it on fire now looks like teeth marks instead of burns.
Looks better with the grille all blacked out! Me thinks, I'll be plastidipping the chrome part I left soon.Here's a few. Like Paul, I removed my grill. This helped:
I saw a pic where someone did the opposite of yours (top black/bottom silver), except with carbon fiber vinyl. The 2-tone might work with a darker car, but on the silver like you have I think all black would look good (personal taste, of course). Hey, if you don't like it just peel it off, right? Not sure if it would dull the finish of the fake chrome, but I plan on keeping it long enough that it wouldn't affect the resale value anyway.Looks better with the grille all blacked out!

Great vid! 299 was just to buy it not installed. they was a link on here somewhere for the wheel arches for 235-250 I think.Here's a few. Like Paul, I removed my grill. This helped:

Close up of what happens if you wait too long to peel on the window trim:
The first two whole car pics are taken with the sloppy trim, so you can see that even though it's not perfect yet, you can still drive around and barely notice it until you have another chance to fix it.
How does it do when driven through, say, sleet at 70mph?
As long as the Plasti Dip has enough time to cure properly, it will stay put through rain, sleet, and car washes. If you are going to Plasti Dip the chrome pieces of the front grill, I would recommend sanding and/or using self-etching primer before applying Plasti Dip - this will give you a much better surface for the Plasti Dip to adhere too since the chrome can be "slippery".I am also wondering this.
