Is there a link to where I could find such instructions from? Wouldn't want to bother people by asking on the forum if I could.

Also, by any chance do you have the instructions for the front?

One of my mates helped me to dechrome by wrapping, but the edges keep coming up... Thought of plastidipping them myself..

Thanks a bunch!
