Black fender trim-DIY

I just got the shipment of the Black fender trim for the side indicators, I find the original chrome-design a little out of place.

Just took some pictures with my mobile so it can be to a little help to others.

Its three locks you have to compress with a knife or something similar, one in the front, one on top and one on the underside, then just slide it out in a forward motion. The rest is plug an pray

It's a very subtle mob, but when you first see it, it makes a big difference.

I have the same gills and did it myself too. Instead of a knife I used a credit card wrapped with tissue paper to protect the paint job. Quick two minutes job.

I'll be doing this soon, I'm just waiting for a DIY to do it since I didn't know how to remove the trim.

sorry I didn't realize there was a question here. I actually used a vinyl to wrap the bumper light and the fender trim. There are vendors here that sell them if you want it painted.

If you have a space gray like mine, let me know. I still have some spare vinyl, I can probably mail it to you.

PM me if interested.
