I am having the most difficult time getting the vinyl right on the whiskers. I can get it smooth and cut almost right but I ALWAYS get some of the chrome showing at the top. Does anyone have a good way to stuffing it down into the cracks so when I cut it there is no chrome showing? I've tried a credit card but it didn't work.

Pm me if u need more strips. I really find that my fingernail works best. You want to work it in the gap before you actually trim so it covers cpletely.
