  • Bye Bye Window Chrome Strips, ..Hello Carbon!

    I went a bit crazy with some carbon vinyl and a craft knife yesterday (despite having a sprained hand and being told to rest it for a few days ) and this is what I achieved. Thanks to VXRDave for the idea, ..the rear ones were quite easy to do, ..but not so the front ones as the chrome bits don't come off on their own. I was quite happy to lose the chrome, think it looks better, but not sure if I should redo them in black like VXRDean has done. Let me know what you think peeps! Please excuse the dirty car Paula x

          The rear ones are quite easy, ..so probably about 15 minutes for each strip, ..measuring, cutting fitting. The front ones took a few attempts to get it just right, ..you need to cut the strips 16mm thick. The measurements I took showed 15mm for them, ..but whenever I tried fitting I could always see a little glint of chrome here and there, so cut 16mm strips and it fitted perfectly, ..no chrome in sight x
