    Guys,

    Next on my list of mods is to black out the chrome window trim.

    Ive heard that rivets need to be drilled out etc. Im after info on how exactly this is done, and then how the trim is refitted once painted matt black

    I know cfoster has done this so your help would be greatly appreciated man.

    If there's too much work involved ill go to Plan B and paint them on the car which i dont really wanna do!


    Cheers!

    Cfoster did them on his car iirc..... I'd go with wrapping them, removal is pretty fiddly.

    What he said as it's much cheaper than a full set in black.

    Can it be wrapped on the car or does it need to come off? Looks like a pain in the ass!
