For those who have chrome window trim, how well do you think this will apply to that?
A friend of mine does stickers on the side, so he has a supplier...i could ask him who they are, so i just bought my vinyl from him

as for the chrome window trim...this can be easily tackled the same way i vinyl'd my car...just apply the vinyl onto the trim and squeegee it down...use an Xacto knife to trim round the edges and there you have it...

you can also remove the trim...Its attached by some type of double sided block tape...not sure whats it called, but its basically like double sided tape...

How hard was it to make it look "seamless"? I was wondering if you had bought like 6 ft wide vinyl at first lol. How do you handle the edges of each panel? (just wrap under and stick?

Also, I'm in Southern California, If your friend is willing, I'm sure there are many people here that would buy vinyl through him, me included (not necessarily matte black)
