i shaved it, but i still have used a clay bar in that area.. so you can still kinda see the outline...
i got a stubby antenna to cut down on the cuteness of the car

i've also put on black trim around the grill to start the de-chroming of the car.

Sweet MINI. Did you wrap the chrome on the grill or is it painted?

What are you planning on using the white vinyl for?

I get it now. I thought maybe you were going to wrap the headlight and tail light rings white.
