Vinyl wrapping chrome window trim

Anyone have any recommendations in the Bay Area for a shop that does this?

Blacking out the chrome window trim via vinyl wrap will be the last step for me as far as exterior appearance mods (until we get some front lip and rear diffuser options months from now)...never had anything wrapped before but the few shops i've called around in the bay are charging roughly ~$400 on average!

I feel like at this point, it'd be cheaper to just have someone paint the dang trim instead, but not sure I want the trim to be permanently blacked out quite yet....

PS: plasti-dip is NOT an option for me, been there done that and really don't want to do it again.

If you don't get a bite here, try asking in the FB group. Might get more takers there.

I have a buddy that went to King of Wraps in San Jose and they did nice work.

Not sure how far you are from there but just a suggestion.

$300-$400 sounds about right. I was quoted the same here in Chicago.

If you have some spare time I would ordered the wrap and do it yourself. It's surprisingly pretty easy

****. $400 for just the window trim seems steep. Thought prices in New England were high, but I got full chrome delete, lower bumper and tint on the rear reflectors done for $500 in Maine.

My fault, I was thinking you were trying to get more than just the window trim wrapped.

I was quoted $400 for the window trim, grill, side vents and fog light bezels

Lol, no worries...i'm still shopping around. Full chrome delete for $400+ makes sense...but for just the window trim? No thanks...

If Broxx was quoted $400 for wrapping four areas, would a good price for Window trim be around $100-150?

I'd be willing to pay $250 at most....anything else is insanity, imo.
