    rear chrome trim removal

    How is the rear chrome trim removed? (as in the photo below) If I wanted it black (vinyl wrapped or painted) then how easy would it be to take out and replace, possibly a few times ! ?

    Easily removed by either a trim tool or a thin paint scraper however the small clips sometime break so you need to re-fit with body trim tape, i have a spare saloon one in my garage with only one clip broken if your interested??

    I bought a set of 4 BOJO plastic tools for a tenner all in (used). So many times it would have been useful, and I am sure I can lend them out.......

    I like the idea of doing this trim in gloss black (my car is silver)

    Do you guys think the chrome trim around the windows would look good blacked out or not?

    ive just blacked the door surrounds temporarilly with electricians tape this afternoon on mine (black car though) and it looked good. It had bubbles in it but i just wanted to see how it would look. I think it would take a bit of effort to do properly with vinyl wrap or paint though so I probably won't bother doing it. You might be more patient than me

    I've just finished blackening my window surrounds on my S4. Looks loads better. I removed them, flattened, etch primed and sprayed satin black! I'll get some pics tonight.

    Not too bad, thin black plastic trim cover underneath them just pulls off, then the rivets just need drilling out around the tops of the doors, on the back section it is just clipped in. Sounds daunting but it really isnt that bad! With the 2 below the windows each side I painted them on the car, just masked and covered everything up around it.

    My window surrounds are black and therefore cannot really understand this one trim being in chrome, hence the need to change it!

    I doubt it as it's not part of the bodywork. Worth a try though...

    http://bit.ly/19DLZNz. I've got my eye on this stuff to cover my trim but got a feeling it's overpriced electrical tape that's slightly wider than normal stuff!
