Default Where Can I Get the Chrome Bumper Trim?

Hi ~

I need to replace the faded and cracked chrome trim strip on my front and rear bumper covers. Some of the trim is missing, and what is left has faded and cracked. Where can I buy this? Is it custom fit, or supplied in a roll? Finally, is it hard to remove what is left?

Thanks for any ideas.

Yes it is. I don't have the numbers handy, but Aviator replaced his a while back.

yes its different, the grille is plastic, and the trim is more of a rubbery material

Matter of fact...I saw a grill trim partially off a 92-95 this weekend. Looks like the backside has clips that hold it on.

So, the chrome rubbery trim material is glued or 3M-taped on. Is that the concensus? On the rear bumper, it'* 3 pieces: right, left, center. The right and left are missing, and it seems they were just put on with some kind of adhesive. I suppose the rest is like this also. I guess I'll just use a little razor knife to remove the rest. Any better suggestions?

Thanks,
John
