Yeah one off of ebay! The name is in my original post. I just barely got around to installing it. I like the look of it.

How much of a pain was it to do? I found the kit for $50 on eBay and I’m trying to decide if I want to do it myself or go to a vinyl shop

It wasnt that bad. I used a spray bottle with water, something hard and flat credit card shaped to scrape out excess water and an exacto knife. I first cleaned the chrome big time with some alcohol. Don't do it when it's windy or just do it inside the garage. Drench the chrome with water and lay down the strip. Align the bottom of the chrome up first. Apply water, repeal and apply as needed. Be sure to start at the from or back of the vehicle and meet where the door opens and closes. You will need the exacto there at the end. Once you have placed the vinyl in the right position scrape the vinyl with the card to remove the water under the vinyl. Repeat same process on the other side.

Shit to get it perfect less than an hour. Had to figure the best method. If I were to do it again maybe 20 mins.

A couple new parts came in. @PRL Motorsports clutch line and a plaque for the shifter area. The plaque may be a bit large not sure if it will fit.
