Frequently Asked Questions

The longevity of a car chrome delete depends on the method used and the quality of the materials. Some methods such as painting or wrapping will last longer than others.

  1. Painting: If the chrome is painted, the longevity of the paint will depend on the quality of the paint and the care taken during the painting process. High-quality paints that are specifically formulated for use on cars can last for several years. However, if the paint is not applied correctly or is of poor quality, it may start to chip or fade in a shorter period of time.

  2. Wrapping: Vinyl wrapping is a popular method of chrome delete and can last for several years. Quality of the vinyl, application process and care of the wrap are the major factors that determine the longevity of the wrap. The wrap can last up to 5-7 years on average, depending on the conditions it is exposed to, such as sunlight and weather.

  3. Plasti-dip: Plasti-dip is another popular method that can be used for chrome delete. It is a rubberized coating that can be applied to chrome parts, and it can last for several months to a year, depending on the conditions it is exposed to and the quality of the product.

Overall, the longevity of a car chrome delete will depend on the method used and the quality of the materials. It’s important to use high-quality materials and to have the chrome delete applied by a professional to ensure that it lasts as long as possible.

The reversibility of car chrome delete depends on the method used. Some methods are reversible, while others are not.

  1. Painting: If the chrome is painted, it is generally not reversible. The paint will need to be sanded or stripped off in order to restore the chrome. This can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive process, and it may also damage the chrome underneath.

  2. Wrapping: Vinyl wrapping is a popular method of chrome delete and it is reversible, If the chrome delete was done by a professional, the vinyl can be removed without causing any damage to the original chrome.

  3. Plasti-dip: Plasti-dip can be peeled off when it is no longer desired. However, in some cases, the adhesive may leave a residue on the chrome, which will need to be cleaned off before restoring the chrome to its original condition.

Chrome delete, which is the process of removing chrome accents or trim from a car, can involve the use of various methods such as wrapping, painting, or plasti-dipping. The durability of the finish will depend on the specific method used and the quality of the materials.

Wrapping is considered to be the most durable option, as it is resistant to fading, chipping, and peeling. However, it is not permanent, and the wrap will eventually need to be replaced.

Paint and plasti-dip are also durable options, but they can fade over time due to exposure to sunlight and other environmental factors. To avoid fading, it is important to use high-quality paint or plasti-dip, and to maintain it regularly with regular washes and waxing.

Routine car washes and polishes may cause the finish on a Blackout over Chrome vehicle to fade over time. The harsh chemicals and high-pressure water used in car washes can strip the protective clear coat on the vehicle, causing the black and chrome finish to fade or become discolored. Additionally, polishing compounds and waxes used during detailing can also cause the finish to deteriorate. To protect the finish on a Blackout over Chrome vehicle, it is recommended to wash it by hand with a mild soap and to avoid using harsh chemicals or high-pressure water. It is also advisable to use a high-quality car wax or sealant to protect the finish and to avoid polishing the chrome.

Yes, ceramic coating can be applied to a blackout surface, as long as the surface is properly cleaned and prepped before application. Ceramic coatings provide a layer of protection for the surface they are applied to, and can help to prevent scratches, stains, and UV damage. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying the coating, as well as any necessary preparation steps for the specific surface you are working with.

"Highly recommend them."
I have an older F 250 like new. Had Billy put new stereo, alarm, keyless entry, back up cam etc. Everything was perfect except the key FOB. FOB kept failing. Every time it failed Billy had me bring the truck back in. They finally figured out the issue. Its been almost two years since and keyless entry/FOB, alarm etc working flawless. Billy always professional and stuck it out until they solved the problem. Could not be a happier ending. Highly recommend them.

"Billy and his team exceeded my expectations..."
Went to Audio Toyz to have a JL Audio Stealth Subwoofer, Amplifier, and navigation override installed on my 2017 Cadillac Escalade. I met with Billy and felt very comfortable with his product knowledge and and experience in the field of car audio among other auto related things. Billy and his team exceeded my expectations and added some things that I didn't even think about to add to the vehicle at a cost much less than his competitors. I would recommend Billy and Audio Toyz to anyone in Orange County that's looking for any and all car audio upgrades. Thanks again Billy and Audio Toyz!

"Honest and quick service!"
What do I received? Honest and quick service! The only thing that was not so great was the waiting list time . But considering that they offer services on place with limited staff, it's totally understandable (and also seems they have a lot of work).

"Excellent service from everyone."
I thought I'd add another 5 star review to the Audio Toyz collection. I was originally working with another shop nearby to have some auxiliary power supplies installed. Now I'm glad they never got back to me with an appointment. I found Audio Toyz closer to my house, service far more personable, and they installed the power supplies along with a dedicated plug for my air compressor all for a fraction of what the other shop wanted to charge just for the power supplies. Excellent service from everyone. I highly recommend.

"Will come back here for more upgrades without a doubt."
This place is amazing and filled with knowledgeable people that know and understand what they're doing. I knew nothing about inverters, installation or how they work until Billy (owner) was able to break everything down for me and explain in detail of what I can run when I'm camping. I set up my appointment and the following week they were ready to accommodate me. Excellent job. The work is just so clean and beyond professional and the price is very reasonable. Will come back here for more upgrades without a doubt.
