    I have a question. I did this and it looked great. Now 2nd day I can see the chrome is coming off the rubber thingy on the round edges at the bottom cornors. How do I avoid this happening? Did I get some shitty chrome lip or what? I paid $15 for it. But from what I saw its a chrome sticker on top of that rubber thingy.

    You may have not pushed it down hard enough while applying it. The sticker quality to the chrome might not be to great either.

    No no i got the chrome tip. I went and took a close look and figured out what is going on. We have a thin white clear overlay on top of the chrome to protect it I guess and thats what is coming off around the round edges. I beleve if I take it all off it should be fine but I wont risk it fro now.

    I am just going to sand the crap out of mine before i paint it tomarrow then paint it with a few coats of primer sanding inbetween then a few coats of flat black paint, After that I plan on letting it sit for a while so the paint sets up, then I will aplly the chrome trim around the outside edge.
