    Window surrounds wrapping

    I was looking at wrap but was going to DIY using smoke tail light tints. But as I am no brain surgeon with a scalpel, I have decided against and now getting some smoke plasti-dip, I want a slight translucent shine rather than full black out.

    Looks like water has gotten under the clearcoat, is there a chip of some sort on the spoke? Can be fixed with some care and attention, need to strip that area sand away the corrosion, get back to clean diamond cut surface then re-etch and lacquer. Cost I am not too sure.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Ouch!! I self induced a bit of kerb rash, I cleaned up the area with some rubbing alcohol to get rid of the black stuff then used a small file to round off the jagged edges, then used a silver ink pen to cover it.
