Did my chrome delete today! Driver side came out flawless, passenger side is meh :/. I highly recommend it, especially on darker colors. Gives it a nice stealty look. Pics will be up when I get my mudflaps installed

How did you do it. I did mine with plastidip and it came out like **** so I took it off. Then I tried to vinyl it two different times but I couldn't cut it perfect enough to not show Any chrome....

I'm not sure if you used the pre-cut ones like I did but after the failing twice I found out a way that worked (for me at least lol).

They have them cut a little bit longer so you can place it a little bit off. They way I did it was: I didn't even pay attention to the bottom. I had some one hold the vinyl and I slowly went and placed in down only looking at the top. I went maybe an inch and took off the air bubbles and repeated that process. If you just line up the top you are good to go, and make sure you have that second person holding it for you or else its literally impossible.Basically if there is no chrome on the top, you wont see any peeking through at the bottom. It took me some time, but the result is worth it.

Yeah, I had lots of fun out there. I was pleasantly surprised with my cars capabilities stock! Only thing I would change is suspension. I was also surprised there weren't more 11+'s out there.

I plasti-dipped mine yesterday. Started with the passenger side and learned from my mistakes. All you need is a lot of painters tape and spray in really light coats. Drivers side came out 99% perfect (stupid mirror can be a bitch). I'll take pics after work. I'm impressed with how clean it came out.

Some plasti-dipped accessories:

don't mind the dirt spots, the badge is ALL black.



And this is for giggles.

You only need one person.
Leave the vinyl on the wax paper while you slide it off onto the car.
I also lined up the top, and trimmed the excess when finished.

Honestly, this product is ****.
The height of the vinyl is too much. So it partially sticks to the rubber frame of the chrome trim. This is not something it wants to be stuck to.
After 4 months of having this on, the tops and bottoms of the vinyl pieces are wavy and no longer sticking to the rubber portion of the trim.

I'm with cmiller, going to plastidip next, more of a long term solution without painting.

This was my process. Two rows of tape then paper all over. Take your time with the first row of tape to get it as close as you can to the chrome.


then i put the paper on.


As soon as i was done spraying each coat i carefully removed all the tape and paper while it was still wet.

and it cam out like this.



no one flaw even right up on it. Under the mirrors was the trickiest part just take your time.

Turned out nice but probably took you a lot longer than necessary plastidip is awesome because it wipes off easy on glass and paint, and cuts itself at seams. I taped an inch above the chrome strip and an inch below. After 3 light coats...just peeled away the tape and finger rolled any excess plastidip. When I first started I got some on the window but it just wipes off...nbd

Subtle pinstripe on grill and scoop. I had the red on before, but thought about trying this. Even more subtle on the picture.
