And I would not use any type of sharp knife or utility knife. The rubber/vinyl is soft and gummy enough that a simple screwdriver or putty knife will cut it without cutting the fabric.

^^That looks pretty good. I like the blackout. We just landed some more of these OEM parts and actively trying to find someone else that can produce these for us to lower the price. Mine are cracked out again and i have treated them, it seems that the treatment prolonged the life with the VRP CG stuff.
It would be cool if we can get them produced with our trims in factory blackline.

Saw Whine not Walnuts' fix in person at MOTD and it looked great. We're hopefully going to do this on my father's R52, as his trim is completely rotted.
