Default blacking out xc

Im kinda tired of my cookie cutter, so ive been thinking of blacking out a few pieces: Chrome headlight bezel, crash bars, saddle bag hinges and the chrome on the rear taillght. I'm thinking about using plastic dip. Anyone have experience using this stuff or if anyone can share their experience or advice on routes they have went.

I think you would look more like a cookie.
Why not find a pin striper in your town and have him do some work on it.
Paint does not stick to chrome

Did my whole bike in PlastiDip. Would definitely recommend for hitting trim pieces.

On left side picture, I dipped the belt cover with black. It is originally chrome.

Also did chrome cheese wedges in black.
