I wanted to get rid of this right when I got the car. Unfortunately, 3M didn't have white wrap for the rear chrome.

Powder coating is the best option and have seen few cars here with this. Here's my friends Tucson with zero chrome. This is something I would want.

Thats a pretty neat job! Would explore something along these lines.

If there is a good source for powder coating then that would be the way to go! But I have generally noticed that powder coating lacks longevity, not sure if any good source can offer something durable.
