Styling Dilema: Pillars and Grille
 
I am kind of stuck...
What should I do with my pillars, window lower molding, and black mirror molding.

*I want chrome window strip molding but have yet to find that** Maybe DIY

Also I was thinking about getting the projectors today however I have no idea if I should buy an OEM darker grille, keep my chrome grille, or plastidip the grille black as long as it resembles the OEM black grille.

Keep in mind I would keep the door handles, mirror caps, and window strip (if found) chrome.

EDIT: Also have chrome rims.

Chrome pillars will not look good at all. Wheels, grill, handles and mirror caps are OK if you really like chrome but stay away from adding any more.

I'd color match everything that you aren't sure what to do with. I feel like too much chrome (as mentioned above) just won't look good.

I like my chrome door handles and mirrors. I think it just makes the car stand out from everyone else. I am going to get the black projectors and probably the black grille unless it looks good with chrome and black headlights. That will be the extent of my chrome I think besides the rims.

Sound like a reasonable amount if chrome and black together?

Chrome is dead :/ I like the black idea though

Do you have any pictures of your car as is other than your avatar?

Nope?

No more chrome. At least your mirror caps and handle look like they could be factory but pillars would simply be too much bling. Keep it simple and clean.

BTW the pinstriping has to do. Doesn't flow with anything else on the car.
