Extraordinary job! Looks professional from the pictures. I dont like the chrome front grill as I feel it's too obnoxious but I didn't want to pay $200 for someone to do it.I actually bought a piece of matte black vinyl from VViVid on Amazon. It was like 1 ft wide by 5 or 6 ft long. Want to say less than $10. Used a hair dryer to stretch around the angles and curves and a sharp exacto knife to trim. For the door trim, i bought 2 rolls of TrimBrite blackout tape from Autozone. One roll per side. $5 per roll. Use a straight edge (like an old credit card to smooth air bubbles as you go and press the edges down). For any area where you didn't trim pefect, use flat black enamel paint and a toothpick to cover exposed chrome. A little patience and you can do it too. But fear not, if you mess up, you should have enough extra material to do the section/piece over. I got better as I went along. And worse case scenario, you only invested about $20. Also, in the end (if it sarts to fade or peel over time), it's all removable and your trim can be restored like nothing ever happened. Have fun with it! Hope that helps.

Nice, here's mineAs I told a friend, I had extra vinyl and time, so yes, I wrapped it too! That one a little tricky. Cut a square piece, put over the H and use hairdryer to heat and start pushing around contours. I dont think it's gonna hold up in the long run though, too many curves. I got practice with vinyl work with all the other wrapping I did. Rear I did this treatment (only chrome I have left on car)... View attachment 5237
Thanks, it was just the easiest way to go about it lol Originally I wanted to peel the inside so only the chrome was blacked out but the way the paint formed between layers (the Plasti can I had was 4-5 years old and lost pressure, thus the spray was more "wet" rather than mist spray). There's a part on the bottom where there's an air gap and if that thing rips then the chrome will be exposed and I will probably have to remove all the plasti dip. Not bad considering my main goal was to black out the insight and hybrid emblems.Like it! I think I'll black mine out too. I opted to debadge everything else! Post your pics when your done with your project!
