For being extremely color blinded. I think this match looks almost perfect! What do you guys think?

Not bad! I think it being matte vs gloss will make a big difference though.

yeah, it's tough to find the right stuff. It's all good, my bumper trim is dipped silver, so it's matte while the rest of the car is glossy, so I know how it is.

Got it done. Actually I really like it. Only bubbles under it are where the chrome bubbled. But looks a lot better then the Chrome.

Well got it all done today. Looks great. How do I remove the rest of the sticky stuff from around the old lettering? I had some turtle wax label remover and that worked good but theres still outlines of the lettering on there.

You will have to polish it to blend it in. The outlines will then go away
