Plasti-dip headlight bezel

Was curious if just plasti-dipping my headlight bezels would work, instead of buying black ones. Don't know much about plasti-dip so any knowledge about it would be nice!

I plastidipped mine. They looked good and lasted until the first time I washed my jeep (I use a powerwasher). Some pealed off so I just painted them flat black with spray paint.

I plastidipped mine months ago. Pressure wash them all the time, and they still look like the day I did them.

I painted mine with rustoleum & it's held up well for a few years now (no chips). However I wouldn't go as far to drop that mod in the 'regrets' bin, but I've never been too crazy with the results. Just makes my stone white jeep look like she's suffered spousal abuse and two black eyes to show for it.
