I know that a couple of people have used the black glass tint on their headlights...my question is, if I spray the chrome trim around the doors, how can I prevent it from rubbing off? Do I use a clearcoat spray? Basically, I just want to tint the chrome areas a little...give it a black chrome look...but not totally black. Any input appreciated.

Try using a bonding agent. You can get it at any local paint shop, it comes in a spray can. The only thing is that you should really sand down the chrome trim so it will have a good surface for the piant to stick to, but that why i suggested the bonding agent. It should do the trick...

I actually bought this little bottle of some liquid that you mix with water and you use a sprey bottle to put on the window...then the wtaer/liquid bond with the adhesive after several hours. Its usaully by the window tinting and supplies like at Checkers and actually even Wal-Mart

yea dont sand it, that why i said to use the bonding adgent. It is clear, and when you put on the black tint it will have something to bond to. So i will more resistant to peeling. You could also use a clear coat to further protect it. They sell that in a spray can also.

Ok Nostrodomas...I see. Nail polish would be very time consuming, and I cant put it on my headlights. ;) Thanks for the input.
