Ben, how did you black out the chrome door strips?

Plasti-Dip them in place with taping or pop them off and dip them separate?

Just bought a can of matte black and the front whiskers will get done this weekend.

My car is a SE and didn't have the chrome strips. But I would sugest slipping playing cards or flash cards in between the trim and the car and then pull them out before it drys.
Here is an example
