Black out

Hey guys, I'm looking for a Black out kit for all the exterior (and maybe interior) chrome on an r53. Anyone have any ideas? I've been looking around and can't really find too much.

a lot of people do it themselves. I know there are there are vinyl black out kits for the chrome around the headlights, but I would assume they are really hard to install unless you know what you're doing... my man does vinyl graphics and I asked him about these and his response was "ehh, you're better off rattle-canning it"

great service. I just had most of my trim wrapped in body-color... looks great

most everyone has at one point blacked out stuff using PlastiDip spray paint...its removeable. Just search it
