Makes it much easier to paint just the chrome part and not mask off anything. But I think that only applies to the pre-LCI models with the turn signals there

First time I wrapped them in gloss black vinyl. Eventually it cracked, so I just recently sanded them and painted them with SEM gloss black trim paint and it looks AMAZING.
I tried this. After destroying the credit card I gave up.
Has anyone tried taking it off with a packing strap? same way the badges come off.
