They don't sell an aftermarket one?

I'd just take it to a body shop and have it done professionally.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

they make a gloss that you can spray over the plastidip, but i would use a scotchbrite pad to scuff it up and use an automotive paint, that will give the best glossy black look.
