What did you do to your mk7 today?

bought 7$ 60inch piece of chrome vinyl wrap from amazon, wanted to wrap the red strip of the front grill, safe to say its going to stay red. Wrap is super hard to work with and the front piece is very very hard to wrap (for someone with no experience) You cannot take the red strip off grill, there are clips on back but part of it goes under the VW emblem so that wasn't an option. Maybe I bought the wrong wrap I dont know but it was like a dang sticker, not easy to work with at all

mk7_bk,
I used some stuff called Prostripe, think most auto stores have it, it's 1/4" wide so you need to do 2 rows lapped a little. Definitely not perfect looking up close but past a few feet away doesn't look too bad, not very expensive so might be worth a try.

I used black amazon sheet vinyl to wrap the chrome on my grill, you need a heat gun to properly work with the wrap material.

This is what I tried to work with: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CIRINJ2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 , maybe im just doing it wrong, i have a heat gun, i have exacto knife, i have what i need but this stuff is impossible to work with. I want both stripes chrome, tried to cut it and get it perfect to cover all the red and its not easy, the vinyl has sticky on the bottom and it doesn't wanna go up in the crack of the grill, such a mess

407 miles 12.6 Gal = 32.3

car readout and math agreed. it was on 0 range for about 10 miles....I wasn't super nervous cause I've been lower on the gauge before but I doubt I would make it to work the next day if I didn't buy it.
