Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

First quote was $400. Ouch. You guys think this is a better way to go than plastidip? Here is a vid of a guy doing the plastidip on a tesla.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

Wondering how that would last in weather considering how easy it rubs off.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

IMO plastidip isn't the way to go. I have tried doing the trim on a previous car and not only is it a lot of work, I never got it to peel up right after applying and I had imperfections on edges everywhere. Not only that but it's a flat black where as I wanted gloss black. It also scratches very easy. Just rub your finger on it wrong and it will come up.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

I had my Vw GtI professional dipped and I would definitely have wrapped it but it wasn't in the budget. For our trim, I wrapped it. Lasts longer and looks 10X's better.
Dip Is a pain and will eventually peel on you.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to to do the vinyl, but I may give it a go myself and if it doesn't work out, pay someone. Looks like the investment is pretty small to do it yourself, $20 or so for materials and some time watching you tube videos.

Yeah I guess its worth a shot yourself. I tried myself first and it didn't turn out good. The problem is that I think the wrap I used was not good quality because it would not easily shape to the curves and the parts that did just peeled right up not long after. This was with using a heat gun as well. It almost seemed like the wrap was just too thick. I can only imagine you want a very light and thin material that can easily stretch and conform to the contours. Unfortunately its hard to find the best stuff based off ebay adds.
I would go with the stuff mentioned earlier in this thread. That stuff might be worth a shot as it seems to be made specifically for window trim wrap. You will need a very steady hand and a good razor, but you have to be careful that you aren't scratching your original chrome trim underneath.
In my case since it was only $200 bucks done professionally, just getting it done was a no brainer, especially since I tried myself and failed.

Don't be cheap. It will cost you in the end. If it was a flat panel, I would say do it but the trim is a pain in the ass. Trust me.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

Paid to have the trim done, 250, I'm too OCD and that's a little hard for a beginner to do. I did the roof and mirrors myself.
