OK looks good how was it done ?

Is there a lot of touchy/feelie to make it fit in all the corners or can you lay it on and run and it just sucks in and fits the piece, LoL. How much work to it ?

You have me thinkng on this, may not happen forme because I am also thinking Silver (FX4 - sort of) but another route to think on.
thks.

I took the vinyl and used a heat gun.. you have to use a heatgun if you are working with vinyl... if not you are going to have wrinkles everywhere...

I just youtubed how to do it and then applied the same techinques that I saw.. took me a min or two but after that I was ok. On a scale of 1-10 on hardness I'd say this is like a 1.5 if that... it just takes a little time, just like anything else... rush the job and it will look like ***, Take your time and it will look better and look OEM. I messed up in two spots but you can't even tell cause I fix it in the corners.

Boy, that looks awesome! And that will go with about any interior color as well. As far as the cigarette lighter, I too had that problem so what I did was to put a two dents in it, one on either side and then squeeze it with channel locks or vise grips which will make the opening smaller so you can get it out. The heat from the lighter makes the two halves stick together.

Just to bring this up one more time.

How is the material holding up ?

Any peeling ?

Did you think about doing this for others ?

Welp it's 2017, and the material is still on the bezel. Zero issues with it coming or peeling off. Truck sits outside in the summer in 80+ degree weather and in the winter at sometimes below zero temps. No issues.

I actually just ordered some more this week because I am going to wrap my door pull bezels. Not sure why I didn't do that years ago but I wasn't aware that the actual handle part removed from the bezel part. Now it will all flow a little nicer. It will be like that one dude that made the cf trim pieces on the Mazda's but look nicer and be cheaper..lol
