Re: help on removing chrome from XWGT

Go and buy a $5 brick layers chisel. Grind the tip so its blunt, about 1mm thick. Start at the front lower edge and tap it off, work from front to rear from the inside of the car.

I removed them from my XC coupe a few weeks back, works a treat. No damage or twisting.

Must add, those brick layers chisels are about 4 inches wide.
