    I make decals and such (hence the name) and I had some chrome vinyl in my stock. Figured I'd give touching up that awful peeled trim a go.

    Here is the before:

    I probably should have continued doing the top corners so it would all match. But my back's sore, and I feel accomplished enough.

    While I am very happy that my '14 does not have the chrome trim and related headaches, this is a great looking fix. Well done.

    Plastidip is the way to go man. Cheap easy and reliable. I've used it for many things
