So did you paint it in place or take it off? That is what I really want to know; how do you get the ting off to paint it?

PLastidipped it in place. Tape around, leaving some area exposed between tape and chrom strip. Apply 5-6 coats evenly with 5-10 minutes in between each coat to dry. Peel off excess plastidip around the strip, should tear evenly.

Also, please reply to the PM I sent you immediately
