looks hella clean bluesolara... what did you use to black out your chrome trimming???? h1e1l1p
thanks bro...

I used TRIMBRITE blackout tape, and since I'm not a handy person, I had a shop tape it for me for $50, and of course the $21 for 3 rolls of trimbrite tape @ $7 each

but to be honest, the tape looks good...but not PERFECT, the JDM window trim ($400) has a gloss black finish, (GAntonio has them), but the trimbrite tape is kinda flat black, and WILL peel off little by little, so if you're a perfectionist, you should definitely get it PAINTED at a shop for maybe $100-$150, I think that's definitely the better way to go

but again, if you're good with your hands, just spend the $21 first, and see if you like it, because you can always just peel it off

good luck with your car! I love the way it looks

God bless

Kevin - who misses his "hella clean" TSX :tard:

If you go to lcrazyaznl DIY about painting his front grill. Use the site that he gives and buy the paint stuff and paint it yourself. Use some newspaper to cover the windows and body and just do that.

How do paint the chrome window trim?
I heard that if u try to take off the trim, it is almost impossible to put the chrome back in because it bends the chrome out of shape. Or can u just paint the chrome whilst its still attached to the car...?
I have the tape as well and its going fine. Its been about 6 months =D
