Here are my results with PlastiDip. 6 months later with multiple auto car washes and about 9000 miles with no signs of wear.
Click the pictures to enlarge. Sorry about the dirty car.

Love the chrome delete cheech. It came out nice. Did you remove all the pieces or block any off and spray while on the car?

No I left everything on. Just spray it thick enough so it will peel off of the areas you dont want it on. It cuts its own edge as you peel it so the lines are perfect. I did tape and used paper to cover some areas to help with some overspray but you want it to overlap the chrome so you have a peeling point to get the edge to cut right.

Your V is sweet!!!! I had an '04 V for a few years. Loved that car, but had to have the rear end replaced twice.

Cheech,
Your pics look great!! Did you also do the lower body cladding? Hard to tell in the pics. That's one helluva upgrade in my book.

No the lower cladding is stock. Was thinking about painting it the body color. Not sure yet.

Wow, that looks great! I was thinking on doing the monochrome look like Kirk Doucette's, but I like the blackout look so may give this a shot. How many cans of Plasti Dip did it take to do all if it?

Any prep before spraying? If I do this on some exterior parts how long until I can drive without worrying too much?

I just made sure it was all clean. No special prep. 10-15 mins between coats. 4- 5 coats 1 hour dry time on last coat before peeling. That's how I did it and it worked out fine.

I have seen somewhere, can't remember where now, a grill that looks like the Aston Martin grill. Anyone know where I might get one of these to fit my 2010 SHO?

Love the plastidip results. Last pict-wow those wheels are bright. Have you thought about doing them? Along with fender SHO inserts. I really like the look. Cheaper than paint and it will come off easily if you ever want to go back.

So, you are saying to not mask right up to the chrome? Rather leave some room for over spray and peel it off with a finger nail? And you get a clean edge?

Yes. The heavier the over spray the easier it is to peel off and get the line to cut.

Just did my grill like DrSHO. It makes all the difference in the way it looks. Small things like this make it look great. Found plastidip on the shelve at Home Depot. Appears to be holding up very well through carwashs and pressure washings for bugs.
