Matte and Gloss mix

I have a grabber blue with matte black rims and (soon to be) matte black gt500 stripes. I also have a matte looking magnetic decklid panel with matte black tail light bezels. I really love the look of the gloss black rear decklid panel on the '13s and wanted to put that and some black AMR wheels on, but would they clash with the matte black gt500 stripes. Or can matte and gloss go together well. (I'd also have to get rid of the tail light bezels I guess...)

Personally I think it would look sick. I'm sure others would say it would clash.

I don't think it'll clash at all, should look sick

My hood accents, hash marks and louvers are gloss black and rims are matte black. Awesome contrast.

Do it!

Tough choice, I had the gloss black challenger with the Matte black strobe decals going down the side. Couldn't tell you had the stripes unless you got close enough..,

In your case I think it would look right if you did not over do it..., take some pics along the way. I am sure we will say when enough is enough!

I have a matte black over the top stripe and matte black rims. It doesnt clash. I just dont like the piano black because of finger prints. Plastidip will happen soon.

Thanks! I think that I'll keep the decklid I have rather than going gloss. (I think I just mostly like the 2013 tail lights). And buy some charcoal AMR wheels and replace my hood spears with some gt500 matte stripes!

Ya that would look good. Is it possible to swap the 11 tails for the 13's? If it is i would do it. Those new tails are killer looks.

I second that. The LED strips look awesoms

I heard that you can, their just hard to find. And they don't fit completely perfect unless you replace with a 2013 bumper I think.
