gah, wish I had a steady hand...this won't be an easy task for me lol I had to use an exacto for the vinyl strips I got to cover the chrome whiskers, and put a nick in the actual paint, it's minute and you almost can't see it without a magnifying glass lol but it bothers me...I was also thinking the plastidip route, just to test 'er out, but was thinking pink...

It's not as difficult as you think. The cuts don't have to be exact because you can simply wrap the vinyl around the back of the chrome trim piece, which will actually help it from peeling off, too. That's why I used the heat guy, so I could stretch the vinyl a bit, then wrap it behind. I still got a few bubbles, but they should disappear after a few days in the sun.

Not worth the money. You have to cut your bumper. You can never go back stock unless you buy a new bumper.

Seriously? Shit. What makes you say it isn't worth the money though? Ended up not liking it, or was it bad quality, or?...
