Ended up getting pre-cuts for the window trim.. if it goes well I'd like to try the same on other things like the fog surrounds, luggage rails, and doors trim.
Hey there. Did you end up doing this? I'd like feedback. Quote from a pro shop in Dallas came in at like $900 which is so dumb. Love to hear if the pre cuts worked for you.

Anyone ever try to Plasti-dip the chrome trim? Was gonna try it along with the Chevy bow-ties.

Been waiting for the weather to warm up and salt-spray to end before going to town on the trim with some dishsoap. Spring is in the air though, won't be long.

This looks great! Did you chrome delete everything on your own??
sorry for the late response, but i rarely got on here. i did it all with the help of a buddy. its cheap enough and if you mess up, just redo it. using a plastic razor blade and its pretty easy. just go slow, and you'll probably need to budget for a few extra pieces at first until you get comfortable.

I bought the 3m product on Amazon 1080 it's called. Supposed to be one of the best products. I put this on all the chrome in my 335 coverable and has held up for years. Was fairly easy to apply just put on with tape and some heat. I'd be a bit wary of eBay product only because the time it takes to apply you wouldn't want to have to do it again.

Avery Dennison is a very good brand of vinyl as well.

Another option would be to go full OEM and get the window trim from an RST model Tahoe or Suburban. It’s a bit more expensive of course, about $550-$600 in parts, but it’s also a permanent solution.

Post #41 has the part list:

I actually looked up these part numbers just earlier this week and they are in fact still available. At one point a few months ago they were out of stock.
