Chrome Around Outside windows
 
I have a 2013 Alpine and want to make the chrome around the windows black to match badges. I've also thought of trying to make it black chrome like the wheels. But think that will be harder to do. Best way to do that? Thanks.

gonna order some myself, been trying to figure out how to do this. Only thing that has me stumped is how do I get the vinyl around the curve of the rear side window with one peice so there is no lines...???

I cut a piece large enough to cover the entire window and trim, then placed it on the trim, removing the area the window sits using utility knife.
