Planning to black out the chrome strip between the taillights on the back of the Atlas - anyone done this and have any feedback (+ photos)? I have vinyl I was going to use for part of my front grill, but given the lettering - thinking plastidip might be the easier way to go.

You can take the lettering off pretty easily. Then the world is your oyster.
Good point, I hadn't thought of that but that'll make things easier. Are they just glued on so a little heat gun I presume would do the trick?

Yeah they are just glued on, no holes under them. Just use minimal heat so you don't wrinkle the chrome. I use a little heat and a piece of fishing line to cut the adhesive, then an eraser wheel to take off the remaining glue (again as little pressure/heat as possible to not damage the chrome).

Thanks for the tip. I'll post some photos once I get it wrapped up.

You can take off the "ATLAS" badge on chrome strip very easily. Then "wrap" strip. look up DE-BADGE on line
