    Dechromed. Done by Lyle @ VinylStyles in San Carlos, CA. He and his team are the real deal. Here's one shot before Lyle got to it. Sorry for the bad iphone pics....

    Looks really good.
    I too am not a big fan of chrome

    edit: feel free to not answer but how much did it cost to just wrap the chrome pieces?
    Did they have to take anything apart?

    Nicely done. It looks great.

    I just did the same, as well as a matte finish over the whole car, and tinted windows. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to take some nice pictures inn Washington DC.

    Looks good. Did they do the entire door handle or just the face of it?

    @GDH - they did the face and top so that when the handles present themselves it's all black.

    I have the same color combo. Would love to see your car in person one day. Hopefully I'll see you at a group on meeting.
