Trim Painting in DC area

I want to get my "chrome" trim painted black in the DC area - anyone had this done, what kind of pricing am I looking at cause I'm definitely not spending 1k on shadowlines -

Thanks

Check with Passport. They have a couple folks -- one in MD and one in VA -- who do painting for them.

I needed to replace the cover for the opening over what would be the headlamp washer if I had it, and the covers come unpainted, so I needed to contact one of them. I'd tell you who it was, but I've tossed the card and don't have any idea what his name was.

This is the place I was telling you that I got the vinyl from for my interior lask weekend man. Super cheap and they are local.

If any of you all are looking to get something wrapped, get in touch with Richard. I just talked to him and he's ordering some vinyl today.

I will have both matte black and gloss black trim vinyl next week for everyone that wants to black out their trims. You can have your black trim by next weekend. And once you go black you'll never go back!! well unless you peel the vinyl off. PM me guys!!

I might be interested in this too. Can he wrap without removing the trim? Cost?

Let's have a wrap meet, I will bring the beer!
