    Plasti Dip

    Hello all
    Apologies if this has been mentioned on here before but I am after some Plasti Dip
    As far as I can see, it's only available via Amazon, Ebay or Plasti Dip UK direct
    Can you get it from places like Halfords, Toolstation, Screw Fix or B&Q??
    I am going to use it for my chrome surrounds, so is it better to get it in a spray can?
    And before I spray, do I need to cover the chrome in lacquer/primer first, to get a better finish?
    Thanks

    Just bought a spray can off ebay, £16 with free delivery, I'd rather do that than wrap it, I reckon i'd make a right ar*e of it!!

    Just be aware that Plastidip bought on eBay may not be the proper stuff. I bought some and it was definitely a knock off. Did the same job but doesn't feel as hard wearing.
