De-Chroming 2012 Edge Limited

Recommended Posts

I understand that new black primered front grill inserts are available online.

About the chrome side mirror and door handles....... they "feel" like they are stuck on with adhesive. Has anyone removed them without damage? Was thinking of a heatgun and trying to pry them off by hand.

Chrome window trim. They do NOT look like "stuck on" pieces and I am thinking Plastidip spraying them. Same for rear hatch chrome trim and headlight trim.

Any advice from experience would be helpful.

 

Thanks, Mike

You should've bought a SEL or a Sport model… the Limited is the all-chrome version. :(

I got it used at an amazing price back in 18', they accidentally priced it as an SEL and it has everything available that year. Love the car just want to blacken it.

Careful on the chrome door handles.  On my 2013 Explorer Limited there were screws that held the pieces in place.  I plasti-dipped every piece of chrome on the explorer, and it held up for 4+ yrs

My 2019 Edge SEL is done on the rear and sides for de-chroming. I will work on the grille later.

Atulo,

 

Did you PlastiDip spray over the chrome or buy new parts? Looks great.
