Re: Chrome window trim covered with gloss black vinyl
I recently had this done on my white HA. I couldn't stand the black, bronze and chrome trim mismatch. It ties the vehicle better now and the bronze doesn't look out of place anymore.
My installer also used 3M gloss black. It matches the B pillar well and has self healing properties to clear up scratches in the top clear layer. The install was fairly time intensive, I believe he spent almost three hours doing both sides. I had intended on doing the install myself, but for what the materials would have cost me and at least 2x the time doing personally it made sense to pay a pro installer.
It's holding up well so far in the MN winter. I have not washed it yet, but do not anticipate any problems.
