Today I wrapped this side fake chrome stuff in carbon. two or three bubbles, but this will gone from the sun till tomorrow.
This is fitting perfect to the carbon of my front and back spoiler kits.

Will do also something on the front after my vacation.

Hi Raiders - I can't believe you started this thread! I feel the exact same way and, in my old car, I started de-chroming it but wasn't doing a good job. It was an older car so I wasn't too bothered.

I'm doing my research now but was wondering how everyone is getting on? Could you tell me how to remove the pieces of trim and what method you found best to cover the fake chrome, please?

Many thanks in advance and for your photo's, if you use an image editor such as 'Paint' in Windows, you can crop them to reduce their size and save it with a lower the resolution which will reduce the file size and maybe be small enough to get them posted?

Cheers

Bloggsy

Hi Bloggsy ,
I took mine to a local chap who wraps cars professionally. I had the tailgate trim and lower bumper done , also had the rear screen tinted down a lot more. Almost a year ago and the wrap looks good as new

That's good to know. I'll maybe experiment myself with some wrap (when it stops raining!).

Thanks - I'll post how I get on.

Cheers
