    WWYD: De-Chroming

    We recommend vinyl wrap. We use vinyl in our chrome delete applications. Quality vinyl is important as it will last for years and avoid peeling if done correctly. Here are a few images of chrome delete on several of our customer's cars. Hope this helps. Feel free to message me with any questions.
