Yesterday I tackled the window surrounds chrome. I used a really nice 3m 1080 scotchprint vinyl in gloss black. Looks almost black chrome.....

Looks great Scott !! Debating if I wanted to do that with PD or paint...

Looks really good Scott.

How long did it take you and how much did the supplies cost? I'd like to do this to my Jeep during the summer.

^^^What they said. How was the rear window? Were you able to bend it around the curve in the corner or did you just cut and use multiple peices?

I bought a 84"x60 inch roll and 2 squeegys...one felt covered. Then I just cut one size for the front and rear windows and laid it on. Then trimmed. Its SUPER easy with this vinyl. It was awesome to work with. Took me and a buddy about 4-5 hours total....with BS time in between...lol. The worst part is the trimming.
