There's some residue on the leading edge of the door stripe, but it will wipe off.

Either way, I'm still unsure of it. I'm sure that ultimately the chrome will have to go.
Can't see your photos.

Maybe I need to use photobucket or something. I see them in the post, but maybe that's because the pics are on my computer.

Give me a few.

It does look good, but I opted to black mine out. To me the chrome-less look is a lot more aggressive.

Thanks, I think that ultimately I will end up in the same position. The chrome looks really bad after doing my wheels, and I know that ultimately the whole car would benefit from just painting it.

I wonder what it would take to swap the chrome with someone's black beltline...Not that I think anyone would want to make that trade

I like emoticons/smilies.

I believe there was a thread about swapping out the beltlines. And I think people came to the conclusion that this was too difficult. Better off with plasti-dip or vinyl.

No problemo. I've been thinking of plasti-dipping mine. But I'm starting to think vinyl may be easier.

I will be doing mine in vinyl. I have a plotter coming this next week, then I'll be doing the stripes on my FOFO in vinyl also.

I would be willing to exchange $ for these items if you do...I can't stand this plasti-dip on my car for periods longer than a week.
