Has anyone had their EX grill seperated? What I am referring to is removing the chrome garnish from the grill by releasing the tabs and removing the screws? I currently have my grill off to wrap and it would be so much easier if I had the chrome garnish removed but I am afraid that those tabs in the back are too delicate and will snap. If I knew that the screws that you remove are enough to hold the grill and chrome garnish together then I won't worry so much if I break a few of the tabs but I need some reassurance before I try to seperate both pieces. If anyone knows I would appreciate your input. Thanks.

Just did mine, not too bad I like it. Probably better to remove it and easier, but did the best tuck job I could. Overall looks badass and have enough for the door handles tomorrow. :cool: and only cost me 28$ shipped for the 3m carbon fiber.

Very nicely done! I had mine wrapped the same exact way almost 2 years ago now. Still holding up strong as it was the first day. ;)

This looks awesome! Does any one know how well this will hold up in New England, Rough winters with salt from he roads. Anyone have experience in that?

I tried to wrap my console, around the gps and heat and air conditioning nobs. I messed up big time. I used a whole roll. Ended up putting it back together looking the same. I suck at wrapping.
