LOL, yeah they are. Don't know how it happened, but the left rear door on mine got the top corner busted off. By the time I got it off, it was in a couple more pieces.

Once you get the cover off, it's pretty self evident.

Found it; hope it works for you

On another edit, you don't have to go any further than remove the cover, and pop the keypad out. I left the weather stripping loose, and rebolted the cover back on with a couple bolts, removed the weather stripping on the rear cover, and installed the vinyl over both covers at the same time, and slit it between the covers. Tuck the other edges around behind where the stripping will cover it.
That's fantastic, thank you for the tips! Since I'm pulling off the chrome trim to do this, I might wrap that too.

Unavailable most likely because it's BS. I've worked with ceramics, they have to be baked on under extreme heat.

That was the one I bought. It definitely seems to be working for me, but to each their own. I am happy with it.

It is unavailable now because they changed their packaging and the 16oz bottle is no longer made. It comes in a 12oz or 8 oz bottle now.

eta- here's a link for the 8oz bottle. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07MK5DQ...07MK5FQ6W?th=1

Ceramic don't come out of a bottle. It's a clay mixture that REQUIRES Intense heat to cure.

WTF are you trying to imply?
