Chrome trim removal from the side of car

Post by LordBakes » Tue Aug 25, 2020 10:35 pm

Hi everyone,

Any idea how I can remove these?

Is it a simple pop off job? I don’t want to force anything incase I do break them 😂

I think they are a part of the seals, i have the black one on my Dynamic version. My option is that they looks way nicer in black

They don't come off, they are part of the seals.

Wrap them, way simple to do and then can peel them off again when it comes to selling it on

Exactly what I did. Be careful with the blade.
