Additional and Final Red Accents

My red accents to my ride are finally complete. To summarize:

- Chrome delete on front and rear lips with red
- Chrome delete on front grill with red and black
- Red pin stripe on both side mirrors
- Red pin stripe on both rocker panels
- Painted brake calipers red
- Red TURBO emblem on both C pillars

I really like your chrome delete up front and in the back, and your calipers look great! What did you use to do the chrome delete? Is that vinyl or paint?

EDIT: saw in another thread it was vinyl.

Your red pin strip on the rocker panels makes me sad that we can't even buy the lower door trim that is standard on the i30N. I spent a while trying to source it earlier this week but came up empty.

@CT - Thanks! Yeah, I too searched for side skirts to no avail Although, the red pin stripe is a more inexpensive alternative

This looks amazing my friend,

How do you recommend doing the red pin stripe and font back red lining?

I want to make sure I buy the proper tape to try to do it myself now!

@Goku - Thanks! I didn't personally do any of the red pin striping and chrome deletes. My detailer volunteered to do all that for free. With regards to the stripes on the rocker panel, he had his laser cutting machine cut out the vinyl to specific shape. So he didn't have to cut the vinyl while it was on the vehicle.

@Tlee - Thanks! The consensus around here seems to be 3M vinyl tape. Post some photos once you get yours done. Cheers!
