no, plasti kote is a brand of paint, plastdip is a spray on rubber film.

plasti dip will look ok for headlight rings if you want them black (see soupeyrachels car). colour coding is a better option imo, but a bit more work flatting back the chrome etc.

of course plastidip is easily reversible if you dont like, but then its not as durable as painting.
