I love civic computerize console including iMID but it doesn't have any chrome like other luxury cars. So, I got this flexible strips from Pepboys about $20 and install them.

Looks good minus what seems to be a bend under the hazard button and maybe a slight one under the vent next to the econ button. I'm anal so I always notice the little things, unless thats shadows and camera doing it.

Yes, it is the reflection. You have good eyes. It was late afternoon so the sun was in front of me and I had a white shirt.

Off-topic, but where did you get your steering wheel cover from? Thanks
I went to so many auto part stores and I finally found this plane and simple black leather looks at O'reilly store. Just love it.

Thanks for confirming it. And will def do it when its hot. Im pretty much planning to do the same thing as you. Do you think it would look nice with the chrome on the orange part in the picture?

Yes, That would be nice but I don't know why the chrome strip didn't stick that good. I only did it once and removed. Maybe because it's not a smooth surface or maybe because of something oily. Too bad, I ran out of strip right now. :)

Chrome strips do shrink in hot summer heat. I recommend this for cool weather reign. Because I'm in California, I changed to auto wrapz sheet. This is also nice stuff.
