I'm afraid to do this without removing it first. Top pieces are no problem, I've actually taken them off to vinyl, came out pretty good. Bottom pieces I'm worried of bending so had to vinyl while on the car, and ended up doing a less-than-perfect job.

Would really like to know how to properly remove the bottom pieces. Might just take a ride to a local shop that knows how to do it.

Yeah, I understand. The top parts easily come off, I did this on the second side. The bottom ones are fine, don't inspect them too much though but for normal use, its a-ok!

do you think the gloss would be harder to wrap than the matte? i have matte black and i think the gloss looks much better and closer to oem

I've heard it's a lot harder, that's why I just glossy painted mine...

Thanks for all the compliments!

Fair enough! All that taping and masking off though.. cannot imagine how cumbersome it was. Lucky i got factory gloss trim i guess.
