Our Chrome-Deletion service for any vehicle
DE-CHROMING OR CHROME DELETION
Chrome and highly polished elements are to be found on most cars these days, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. And some manufacturers really go over the top.
In response to the emerging trend of De-Chroming or Chrome Deletion, a number of car manufacturers have introduced pared-back designs. Offering made to order cars with chrome details in black. However, as is often the case with high-end cars, the black version can literally add thousands to the price tag.
So the small independent suppliers have started manufacturing De-Chroming or Chrome-Delete packages for DIY car enthusiasts. These are available as bespoke kits for your particular make and model. And of course, they're available at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for the factory black option.
The downside is that they can be very fiddly and time-consuming to fit and you do need to be prepared to put in the work to prepare the car bodywork. Otherwise, you'll get a pretty dodgy finish and the "stickers" could peel fairly quickly.
At MCP Detailing, we have introduced a de-chroming service for our clients. This means you get our expertise in preparing your vehicle, so the surface is spotless before we apply the de-chroming kit. We can work on kits for window surrounds, front grille, badges, indicators, boot strips and cameras and more. You can choose from gloss, matt, or satin finish. We prefer to use high-quality materials from 3M and Avery Dennison. But we can take a look at anything you've got in mind.

TRANSFORMATION OF A TESLA MODEL S
The most recent de-chroming assignment we've undertaken was for a regular client with a Tesla Model S. The kit was shipped direct to the client from the US and we brought the car in for a two-day preparation and fitting.
The Tesla isn't the easiest kit to fit as the door handles retract on the Model S, so these needed to be completely flat and flush.
The gallery below features the before and after shots of the door surrounds, badge and boot strip.
