Chrome Delete?

:
2019 CX-9 GT
I’ve seen CX-9’s without the trim and it doesn’t look as good. That’s the beauty of the Hyperdip, just generally mask the area and the excess peels off neatly right to the edge of the trim.

Finally finished the chrome delete job. This whole project was A LOT more work than I anticipated, but I’m very happy with the results. It honestly looks better in person than it does in the pictures but here ya go! Plan is to get a set of gloss black 22’s to really complete the look.
For those wondering I used Vivvid gloss black vinyl for everything expect the badges and horizontal grille bars for which I used Hyperdip. Hope you enjoy.

Looks really good! Black wheels will complete the look nicely.
 
Just curious if any other members on here think there is far too much chrome on the cx-9? I have a 2018 CX-9 GT Deep Crystal Blue and I really hate how much chrome is on it lol. I just ordered everything I need to vinyl wrap some chrome pieces and just delete them, def will like the black on blue contrast much more since I already have my windows tinted with a 4" brow on the front too.

*dont worry I'll take pics when its done*

did the plastidip work for you? I did mine in the original PD and looked awful after a few highway drives.

Ya the Hyperdip has held up very nice so far. Looks as good as the day I did it, with several highway drives included.

I used the regular stuff and looked really bad after a few months. Would love the black grill though. Luckily I traded my 2017 for a 2019.
