Chrome plastic strip on interior door trims


Recommended Posts

Thanks for that info - I have tracked down a 3M product here in Oz that they use for super wall graphics that is thin - about a third the thickness of normal graphic vinyls.

It is offered in a full chrome effect apparently and pretty reasonably priced in the quantities I would need.

So I will post pics once I do mine if it is any good and then there is another product to add to the option list when doing this work. It should be noted it is not from what the technical support person at 3M told me, sold as a thin strip.

Like the one from Prism Graphics, it will need cutting to a width - this is fine as it needs to be trimmed anyway on installation - however I am pretty certain it is not that product from 3M.

We will see ...

My chrome strips are OK, but someone should check out 3M polyester film tape (in mylar silver) #850B. It comes in three widths (up to 1/2") and seems perfectly suited in recovering the chrome strips. A 72 yard roll has costs about $20 and should easily do 10 cars. We used it to blank out margins on 35mm slides (it is very heat resistant and thin).--Jim
