Default Chrome window trim

Hey Everyone

so i was washing my car the other day and noticed the chrome on the outer driver side door was pealing. I spoke to my local dealer and they want almost $2,000.00 to replace the back and front drivers side.

I was wondering if anyone has done this before, and if so, is removing the chrome trim difficult. For the price of a new one i can remove the trim and get it re chromed

any info or how to would be greatly appreciated

thanks

I sell the new trim for just over a thousand for the set and you can do them yourself.

Thank you FiskerPhilly, the local deal has them for $700.00. Is it easy to pull the trim off?

Itís easy to do if you have done the before. Installing the new ones without bending them is the trick. So your dealer is charging $1300.00 for labor ?
Parts $700.00 Labor $1300.00 = $2000.00

I've said it elsewhere, and I'll repeat it again here: that trim is total garbage!

There must be a way to vinyl wrap them (remove, wrap, and reinstall). Besides saving $$$ on that part (which will just peel again), you can customize - carbon fiber, matte black or something complementing your paint color. I have a feeling wrapping would cost less than the $700 in parts alone, and should last forever.

Has anyone here done this?

I am actually looking into the ability to wrap them with some companies in my area.

Sorry for the delay guys was on holidays last week.

i am thinking of either taking them off and having them re chromed or wrapped as well. Does anyone know a step by step for taking the chrome off? im sure i can figure it out but would rather save some time if any of you have done it before.

any help would be great

thanks

I just picked up my car friday and it looks like they plasti-dipped them. Not sure if they took them off to do it. It looked good so i would assume so.

I'm surprised there's no replies yet from somebody who's actually DONE a wrap fix. Even the trim pieces I replaced started to chip again, so replacing them every 2 years is not a long term solution. Need a youtube video!

i couldnt agree more, this way the risk of me screwing something up is a lot less.
