Pictures don't do it justice, when you do it and see it for yourself your gonna be like why didn't I do this earlier? and it's worth the $6.

Lol, overspray comes off easily with some goo gone or adhesive remover so I wasn't really worried about covering much.

Yep, I had lots of overspray but it's all gone now since I wiped it off with some goo gone and I didn't have no problems peeling the bottom because Grant@JGMODS came by and before I peeled it off he told me to get a razor blade and shove it under the trim so that I won't have to worry about it coming off the trim.
Did you get that tape off your head? Looks a lot better. Let me know the next time you'll be doing some other project

I always do temporary things to my car before I spend big on something I might not like and I thought plastidip was sold all over the place, guess not.

Wait, what, there was tape on my head? but how much of that gloss black vinyl do you have? let me get some of it, I wanna see if it'll cover the dents on my interior trim.

Lol, I heard about the horror stories of first time putting vinyl on the window trim. So I just went with plastidip, user friendly .
