    its been used here to cover the grill and window trims in vinyl, you can always remove it too. http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=273657

    Have you got an A3 or A4 not sure from your name?

    I was after the chrome trims. Maybe we could do a deal?

    Hmm yes let me know how you get on, I might consider doing this on my grille trim - then if I don't like it it's no worries

    Here ya go, I got some 32mm wide black tape and set about taping up the grills on the S6, here is an after pic or two. The main reason in getting the tape was to cover the corroded alu strip along the rear of the car, I did this too.





    Rear before



    After



    I think it is basically 32mm wide insulation tape, you can get 25mm 3M tape cheap enough, must be worth a shot..

    Is this that Shadowline Trim Tape from "Chrome and Carbon" - or literally just electrical insulation tape?

    It just looks like 32mm wide insulation tape to me.. seems to work OK, I would go to my local electrical shop and see if you can get wide black tape and have a go..
