For my vinyl tops i use blue masking tape from Home Depot but you can do a dry spray method where were you spray semi gloss paint from a distance. I have issues with my tape as it tends to want to lift up on the edges and since mines is thick it does lay down nice and flat and kinks.. the Chrome molding is styrene strype( dont remember the size off the top of my head) is called a halo and i use a picture of a real car to fallow the contour and curves of it.. i tack CA glue it in place since adding to much glue will want to make the styrene want to brake... if you can practice on a old body and give it a try..

I love the low profile tires. Did you make them to. They would look good on my "Big Red" Camaro.
