    Good Friday Tinkering - some dechroming......

    In between showers I've dechromed the window surrounds using 3M Di-Noc Carbon effect film........


    Also did the boot trim.......


    And whilst I was at it I replaced the Kahn Centre caps with Audi ones.....

    How did you do the rear chrome on the top of the rear bumper? Mine is starting to bubble.

    Are you going to do the interior trim?

    And that really is a nice fence.

    I unclipped it from the bumper, covered it, refitted it

    Nah - mine's got some nice alluminium trim which I'm happy with.

    Wasn't sure if it was secured underneath so needed the bumper taking off. How did you get at it without screwdrivering your paintwork?

    I do hope you're talking about dashboard trim and not that you've got wood trim on the outside of your car

    I don't think the trims are hard to take off, but the stuff is relatively easy to apply, I did my window surrounds in situ........

    Here's some in situ guidance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Odw8Z...eature=related

    I didn't use any primer - just make sure the surface in clean

    There's a few threads out there, the door bars are easy to get off, the problem one is the small piece to the right of the steering wheel. Here's a thread, although it's for the B6 I believe the trim is the same:

    yep the b6 is exactly the same as b7 but drewbee above, looking at his rear lights is a b6 anyway. ALSO his is a cabriolet !! all is the same except the one above the glovebox, dont try prizing that one out, there is a bolt holding the side nearest the door in, behind the end panel which can easily be removed
    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!

    I believe the gear surround should come up if you pull the gaitor carefully. The front ashtray trim has a set of grooves on the front, just separate these from the main ashtray and then slide (forwards I think) and it should come off.

    I had the same problem mate, mine was also bubbling but then i bought a new one for about Ł12.00 and its easy to fit.

    Just open your boot, and very carefully use a knife or flat tool to lift it from the bumper, i covered a knife with a cloth to avoid paint damage.

    Its a ******* to remove as you cant just pull it, you have to wriggle it as it is clipped in from both sides, but once its loose it should go, then simply clip in your new one and it looks 100x better.

    Hey Rich. When are you going to stop? Maybe di-noc the steering wheel or maybe the seat belts
