Icon10 When a simple wash goes bad....

Well maybe is wasn't bad just finish the decal/trim removal mod I started over a year ago lol. I started washing it and the rubber trim piece was falling off so I just went for it and while I was at it I removed the remaining pin strip, bug deflector and then finished it off with a fresh coat of wax. Still looking for flares with the mud flaps built in, might just paint them black and trim them for the time being, but who knows...

When I bought it:

For the time being, give them a little trim. I was gonna do that just to hold me over and I turned out happy enough to never actually change them... Just take your time... the smoother the cut, the better they look

Ya, I was going to do that, but I finally found a set without the built in mud flaps for a decent price

They should be here by the end of next week, but Im going to paint the black along with the valance
