cleaned with an adhesive remover, but did not brush it up with fine sand paper or anything. I suppose using some 220 or a soft brass wire brush would promote adhesion, but I really haven't had problems with adhesion. Just pull your masking quickly before a strong bond forms and you get some peel with the tape.

Can't remove the rear strip without first removing the rear fascia. It's held in place with spring clips on the backside.

You have to take of the rear bumper and then remove the clips!

So lemme get this straight, I have to remove the whole rear bumper first just to get the chrome off? That sucks. Can I do it without lifting the whole srt?

Unfortunately you'll have to pull the rear bumper if you want to remove the chrome strip. It's really not that tough and the Jeep doesn't need to be raised. Instruction can be found on the wkjeeps site.

Yes, you'll need to drill out the existing rivets. You'll also need a rivet tool to attach the new ones. The rivets and tool can be found online and they're fairly inexpensive.

Ok bumping back up this thread.

For those of you who painted the rear sensors, what kind of prep did you or your bodyshop do? I know for the rear strip they should sand down the chrome and use adhesion promoter, but what about on the sensors?

Also does anyone have pics of a brilliant black painted rear strip??
