Looks great! I'm going to have to find some down time to get this done. What was the best tool for cleaning all of the crud out from the crack? Just a razor blade?

I improvised for that one. A box cutter blade and small flat head were good for chipping the glue and getting most out. I bent a small nail to be able to really get into the back of the crack and get the rest out. A couple blasts of compressed air help too.

This is one of the easiest and least expensive mods that makes a huge difference in the trucks appearance. No idea why FORD wouldn't just do this out of the factory. Quality is always in the details.

I've done it on silver. Makes a noticeable difference for the better.
