Black Plastidip Grill on Black JK?

Has anyone plastidipped their front grill panel of their gloss black JK or TJ? I'm debating on doing this but would like to see photos to reference.

Opinions welcome too

Thanks

Plastidip is a spiffy spray-on, potentially temporary, rubberized coating in a can. You can spray rims, your grill, your whole car, or anything it'll stick to - and if you don't like it or it gets scratched, you can peel it off.

do you have to scuff the surface? This seems like a great way to offset my white Sahara with a way to go back if it doesn't workout

No.
You just spray it on.
It's not meant to be paint, it's more to protect the paint.
Scuffing would be a terrible idea.

scuffing the surface would be permanent and offset the temporary qualities of the plastidip.

You'd prolly have to get the part repainted if you ever wanted to go back.
