I didn't have good luck with that but even if I did, I didn't like how it grayed up from the original black color.

:excuseme: You didn't have any color fade?

What happened or I should say IS happening is that it is chipping off everywhere, I must have done something wrong? Even baked it in the oven and it looked fine afterwards but once on bike, didn't last long at all :excuseme:

Here, check it out .......
