Now we offer you a kit to do it yourself at home. You will get enough blackout tape to do one car with enough extra for one inch past each break in the trim for trimming. Don't forget to remove the protective top layer before you trim the ends. HIGH QUALITY tape, not China made vinyl, made in the USA ! For the Gen 1 cars, most people go with the classic matte black, or go a bit custom and get gloss black! Go really custom on your Gen 1 car and do it in gloss red! Easy to install in about an hour.

Little difficult to start the clear protective layer coming off but otherwise seems to be a great product. 5 easy install, nice upgrade over chrome Posted by Ben W on 25th Oct 2016 clean the chrome, stick it on and go. cheapest mod you can find outside of a supercharger pulley. just do it. 5 Great Product Posted by Unknown on 8th Jun 2016 Easy to use 5 adds character to the car Posted by Zachary Molzer on 25th Apr 2016 the tape really works well and adds a lot of character to the car making it look a lot better! I would highly recommend this if you're going for the "dirty" or "manly" look. great stuff! 5 Awesome Posted by Unknown on 1st Sep 2015 This product is well worth the money. I purchased the kit form Detroit tuned and messed up a few strips on my car as i learned how to do it. I needed to buy another kit but forgot which website i had gotten it from. I ended up getting another kit and it was nowhere near as good as this one. the filament on top of the blackout strip makes it so much easier to apply without pulling the tape to much. It was Perfect 5 love the outcome! Posted by kyle on 23rd Mar 2015 This was super easy to install and looks great! I love it 5 Works great! Posted by Unknown on 27th Jan 2015 love this stuff. be patient and go slow putting it on and it does the trick. 4 Excellent look! Posted by Unknown on 5th Jul 2013 This is a great simple and subtle look to add to the MINI. I love the way it blends in with the rubber. Very nice. I only wish more was included as I messed up a section and had to order another kit because I didn't have enough to go around. I also had to search some forums to find a how-to with pics. 4 Not Quite a Kit Posted by Zach on 14th Jun 2013 The word "kit" used in the description of this item is a little bit misleading. You receive on roll of black 3M tape, and an instruction sheet. I expected some form of applicator, or possibly a cleaner, to be included. Otherwise, this product does exactly what it says it will do: turns the belt trim black.
