Stainless or Black Chrome

Ok, since the paint job is a few years off yet, I need to do something to the rear bumper sometime soon. So, here is my thought. I don't want stickers because they bubble and peal over time...and look kind of cheap.

So...I am thinking stainless inserts. Now, I don't really have any flashy flash stuff on the car, so going with a chrome finish doesn't make sense. So, I am thinking about doing the black chrome instead.

Thoughts?

Re: Stainless or Black Chrome

Also...what do y'all think about me tinting my tail lights? If I did that, it would be a guaranteed black chrome...

Re: Stainless or Black Chrome

We debated that on her car too...

it's really up to how you want the car to look. I think the black stainless with tinted tails would give the rear a mean look.

Re: Stainless or Black Chrome

I had stickers on my old car and have them on the new one... I've had no problems with bubbling or peeling. I actually had bubbles that WENT AWAY after time in them.

SS inserts are sweet though, I just dont like how clunky they look up close, they're just not flush and i dont like that.

The problem is...I debate about my car waaaaay too much. When I can't afford the big items...I can't control the urge to buy stuff...so I debate all this little **** to stop the withdrawal shakes.

Local guy here has black tails on his yellow 03...forgot what they looked like and I Can't find his pics right now.

I'm thinking...tinted tails and black chrome inserts FTW.....

Hmm...so I start a thread, and now have made my decision...only to probably debate it again by the end of the day.

And that is what my hesitation about them has been over the years...the clunkiness...
