Blacked out door pillars

Post by UMBONGO13 » Mon Jun 07, 2021 5:33 pm

Decided to see what the bongo would look like by blacking out the pillar between the rear windows and the drivers/passenger window.
I used some KMPF black gloss air release vinyl.
Was pretty easy to use, only hard bit was cutting a straight edge. There is a product called wrap cut which is specifically used for cutting straight edges but I made do with a ruler and a stainless steel blade. Let me know what you think.

Just reminded me I may need to do this on my new van, and poor Minnies are looking a bit scratched as well!
