Hi,
I’m toying with the idea of having some of the chrome grill on my 2019 R-line wrapped in black - just wondered if anyone has gone down the wrapping route? Seems a bit of a dark art to me - if you’ll pardon the pun.
Thanks

Don't blame you - there is far too much chrome.

Try Plasti dip spray, if you don't like it you can peel it off. You Tube it

Thanks for that - watched plenty of vids, but fairly sure I’d make a cow’s @rse of it!

You digress from vinyl wrapping - making a cow's arse of something is leatherwork!

I’ve wrapped most of the chrome trim on the Treg in gloss black.
Personally think it looks so much better?? Attached File  9DF33B5D-5633-4F98-BD10-5BF7B5445B9B.jpeg (3.83MB)

Yes, I had the window surrounds, roof bars and grill wrapped - very pleased with it.

That looks great , same colour as mine, will be looking into getting two front grilles, window surrounds and bottom of doors done when all back to normal.

Did you do the front grilles?
