I have not. I also want to dechrom my midnight silver. I used vinyl for center console and was pretty easy.

My concern is if the outside temperature is greater than 100 degrees, would the wrap come off if I install it using just a hair dryer ?

this is a bit old. but i used plastidip on mine and its been great.
if you do any of this, be absolutely sure that you go over ALL the edges very well and that you spray a hefty amount around all corners/edges. My plastidip job came out pretty good, but i didnt do the edges very well. so a few edges started to peel. which means eventually most of it will start to come off. even so, its been a few months and its been holding off very well. also, because i didnt spray the edges very well, form the inside i can see tiny bits of chrome along some of the edges. from the outisde it looks great however, but just a pet peeve of mine since i like to have it well done.

Very Cool. I ended up just vinyl wrapping everything myself for the chrome delete since I was afraid superwrap didn't seem as tough. I only used Superwrap on the emblems (which turned out great!)

I've been thinking of doing this myself as well. If you don't mind sharing, how did you handle the big side view mirror bases ?

I tried Superwrap, it peeled off along with my masking tape, could be user error, maybe I should have peeled the masking when its wet, but I was trying to spray thicker and multiple coating, so not sure how I can peel it wet since between each layer, I let them dry a bit before I spray new layer. End up with a mess to clean plus a bunch of prepping time was wasted.

It would have been great since Superwrap is smooth to touch, vinyl-based instead of rubber-based like plastidip. and there is gloss finish for those who wants it glossy.

that's a bummer! I watched a video on it and it said to wait to peel masking till dry, so pretty sure you did it right. Did you use their surface prep?

Yes i did, it was a sponsor deal, i reached out and they sent me a free complete kit, but i failed to deliver a finish product, after 6 straight hours, i gave up. I am the guy who created the first DIY chrome delete video on youtube (Tesla DIY). I ripped my vinyl wrapped chrome delete to attempt the Superwrap, so i was very demotivated after unwrapping my vinyl, preping, peeling and failed. =[ and had to rewrap my vinyl chrome delete.
