Could be long, and again.. bad english.. try to understand. Apologies.
I was inspired by a member with his metallic protection for his dogs to jump in the hatch... well.. my dogs will never be jumping to the hatch themselves, because they are too small. but that part still need protection, because i do lots of grocery and transport lots of things in the truck....
Since i m not a big fan of chrome, and I m cheap, so i have decided to just go with protective stickers.
I got them from Aliexpress for less than 5$, many colors available. Originally planned to have the black one applied, and have a transparent one applied on top of the black one, because the transparent one is thicker. but after i got the black one, it's actually pretty thick, so i only used the black one.
I took the measurement, and made myself these on a A4 paper.
once i got the A4 paper cut, i bring it down to the car, and try the measurement. then come back, cut 2 pieces of the black sticker, place the A4 on top and use a cutter to cut it. then i will get 2 identical pieces of black sticker. one for the right side, one for the left side.
Clean the trunk bumper with alcohol and dry it. then you can stick the black piece. use a credit card or a tool to avoid making bubbles.
If there's bubbles, do not hesitate to pull it out and reapply it again. One side done!
And this is finished product:
Tools i used, very very helpful, found in dollar stores:
