    Looking good, but having been really proud of my efforts at wrapping my fog lamp chromes yesterday, today it's started bubbling, so I reckon it's either plastdip or taking it to a pro.
    Best of luck with your grille.

    Thanks Pete
    Managed to have another go today, looks ok , but far from perfect.
    Thinking along the same lines as you, plasti dip or pro

    I think using gloss rather than satin put you at a disadvantage, it'll show every crease. I don't know whether to go to a pro or try this:

    Although the black satin finish vinyl wrap looks ok on my foglight chromes, as I said in another post the chrome 'wings' on the grille either side of the badge were too 3-D to be able to wrap them. I've just ordered some of this: https://www.frost.co.uk/liquid-wrap-...aerosol-400ml/ apparently it's more wear resistant than plastidip (search 'frost liquid vinyl' on YouTube, there's a biker who has done a side-by-side comparison)
    Hoping to try it out in the next week or so, if it works on the grille I may strip off the vinyl from the foglights and spray them too.
