Has anyone tried out colored/metallic plasti dip?

So i ran a few searches and have yet to find anyone who's experimented with different colors and/or metallic plasti dip finishers. Ive found a pretty good website that specializes in plastidip products: www.dipyourcar.com

examples on their website: https://www.dipyourcar.com/pages.php?pageid=9

Heres a youtube vid as well:

This looks promising and a cheap alternative to powdercoating. I am planning to do my Style32 wheels which I will be using as a winter set. Has anyone tried the GUNMETAL BASE with SILVER FINISHER? They claim this should produce a "hypersilver" finish which I am most interested in. I don't really like the normal black plasti dip look.

Im torn between gloss white or hypersilver. PICS anyone?

Thanks!
