I checked that page.. they make yellow but not in a spray can.. only dipped in a can.. I believe colors in a spray can are red, black and clear..

Did I miss it somewhere?

Also, checked ebay and Amazon with no luck.

Hmmm I wonder if you could take it to a paint shop and have them put it into a spray can? I mean you can do that with any kind of paint, it'd be interesting to know if that would be a possibility.

The ACE hardware here in town sells the PD in Black and White spray cans. They have all the colors in dip form. I decided to give the white a try. Not sure if it is permanent yet. I am still considering the phantom grill, but trying other things out for now.

You can get a can of yellow and mix it in a preval sprayer with 1:1 ratio of naptha. I'm toying wtih the idea of doing some yellow highlights on my wheels as well.

Lotta PlastiDip happening around the Camaro world!

Carver1 here locally does a boatload of it and he could most likely be of help too if any of you have specific questions.

Great topic Stieger!!

Quick question. Will using paint thinner on a chrome bezel damage the finish at all? I'm going to paint my bezels soon but I don't want to damage them at all.

I'm not sure about the paint thinner, I would just use acetone or cleaning alcohol to be safe.
