Been wanting to black out some of my stainless trim, and found this stuff,

Has anyone ever used it? It doesn't require high heat and they claim that there are no caustic fumes emitted during the process.

I've never used it so don't take my word for the truth.
I know that there are several grades of stainless steel and some of them have lots of carbon steel in them to the point of being magnetic. I'm betting this solution is nothing more than gunsmithing "cold blue" solution and they are betting that your item is one of the grades of stainless containing lots of carbon steel so it will turn black when treated with this solution.

platidip might be less expensive and surely more reversible. powder coating is an option as well
I have powder coated door handles in black chrome, but was thinking about the door lock cylinders and the windshield wiper arms. The black chrome powder coat is a two coat process, and probably wouldn't work well for parts that had to move or rotate, because of its thickness.
