    I'd say if you were using aerosol cans then 2 400ml cans should be fine.

    I just ordered two rattle cans direct from their website to have a crack on my old S Line grille. When I opened the package there was a small bag of skittles inside :)

    Nice touch. Either that or the packer dropped part of his packed lunch on my order :)

    The sweets keeps the wife happy when I get ny dip.
    She was not to impressed with my suggestion of the mixing stick though. Lol

    One tin should be fine. One tone covered all my window rubbers and wipers for about 3-4 coats.

    I'd read that one would be enough to do a grille but I ordered two to have some fun inspired by your mental plastidip adventures thread. I've got an old cream coloured Xbox 360 upstairs and as its already been opened up once for repair, I plan on stripping the case off and spraying it up. I think it will look nice in Matt black :)

    I've just fitted a Dension kit and for some bizarre reason the supplied iPhone cable has a white end on it. Sticks out like a sore thumb against the dash. Thought about carefully masking and spraying that too. Maybe at the weekend if I get a chance.

    If you want, I can dip the end in one of my litre drums to save you from spraying it.

    Got black, gunmetal or red. Lol

    Lol cheers for the offer. It reminds me of a vid I saw recently of some guy dipping his whole iPhone in clear plastidip and then putting it in a fish tank while its switched on.

    I've seen that.
    I've got clear but sadly No iPhone, so I can't test it lol

    Plasti dip is really good at waterproofing sheets.
    My dust sheet that I use is now water proof, I get held over 10 litres of water.
