Good instructions, thanks. Just IMO, can't help but think that you should invest in a trim removal set in plastic, that sharp knife edge maybe not the ideal tool.

This is similar to how mine were done. Remove strip, paint body color, re-apply with 3M tape. Just make sure you use a self etching primer and adhesion promoter on anything chrome.

Maybe also use a hairdryer to warm the area to help soften the adhesive.

Yeah I would def use another tool to pull them when you have to re do them. I just wrapped mine in vinyl it was really easy and came out great.
