seeing as your going for the whole black look I would also do the chrome trim of the grill, that or remove the Chrome outline of the Bow ties.

The front end is going into the body shop Monday. A lady backed into my car Thursday while it was parked. So this weekend I wanted to see how it look with black done. I was already thinking on changing the chrome once I get it back from the bodyshop.

It wasn't very hard at all I masked above and under the window leaving a little more than 2inches for pealing. Really wasn't that bad. I'll try and put more photos up tonight, internet at my buddies suck haha

Looks good! Got a quick question for you, Cruze240sx. When you did the rear window chrome, the piece that's connected to the black plastic exterior piece. How'd you get the excess pd off the plastic without it pulling up from the chrome completely?

That is a good question, there is a very small tiny separation there and took lots of patients and magical hand lol. I was also lucky haha I read else where people have had issues with that rear chrome piece and plastic. I also had a box cutter if I need it to make that same small separation. But didn't need to.
