    Default Vinyled boot strip

    I've just ordered some silver vinyl for my boot strip as my regular body shop advised me that paint doesn't like sticking to the strip. Has anyone done this to a silver car before and if so how did it look?

    if its the same silver i use (self employed signwriter) it is much darker silver than the vectra silver. it should wrap fine, and tucked underneath and clamped back down, so shouldnt lift, just the colour that might be the issue as far as i can imagine

    It's a gloss silver I've ordered, I know it's going to be abit darker but I really don't like the chrome strip anymore.

    ahhhhhh, sorry thought for some reason you meant the lip spoiler, i think if it is darker it would look good anyway, break up the colour of the boot lid a bit

    As you said about paint not sticking to the strip take it that would mean the v grill to, as I'm in 2 minds, whether to paint or vinyl it

    I honestly don't know, he's a good body shop so I trust him when he says I'd be better to vinyl it
