Window trim removal

I'm trying to cover my window trim with carbon fiber wrapping. Does anyone know how it get then off to make it easier to wrap?

Wouldnt this use up a LOT of material? unless you warped the vinyl around the trim but that would distort the CF weave wouldnt it?

Just a suggestion why don't you try this.



Sorry if it's not to your liking but it's fun and easy to remove

1. It's not going to look good.
2. People don't remove the window trim to wrap it. (because it's very susceptible to bending)

I would agree with it bending upon removing but atleast if he goes for plastidip it's removable tho
