    Doing the initial legwork to get costs on tint / paint protection / chrome delete. My usual go-to, Accutint in Bellevue, told me that they really don't "like" to do chrome delete on these for a number of reasons: excessive time to apply, potential problem areas like under the folding mirrors, etc - all of which drive up their cost to the consumer.

    Any other folk out there have recommendations for vendors that have done/will do the chrome delete for reasonable price and quality?

    Thanks!

    Kenriko has said he will start selling some on Amazon early next month. He already sells a super nice DIY kit for wrapping the console and door areas that are that dust/fingerprint magnet piano black.

    Good to hear. I have one of his Console kits sitting in front of me right now for application this long weekend.

    I had my car done with full PPF stealth and tint at Accutint Bellevue. Think it was the first one they did. They were supposed to do a chrome delete as well, but only got the side markers/cameras done before they ran out of time. I had it rescheduled and they came back and said they weren't going to do them anymore because people were having issues with the corners lifting. I spoke to a couple other places that recommended Gorilla Mad Film Wraps. I got a quote from them and it was like $1k, so I haven't decided whether I want to go that route.

    Also been trying to find a shop that will paint or powdercoat the trim, but no luck yet.

    I haven't had time to deal with it yet. I did see this post this week where someone had his chrome delete painted (though not local): P3d mods done.
