No question, NO CHROME! Looks great man!! I feel if there is chrome, you need all the accents chrome. Maybe I'm OCD like that. Never understand why Car companies offer "blackout" packages and don't blackout all the chrome (i.e. Window trim)

Thanks bro...couldn't agree more!! Now I need to tackle the window trim...more than likely I will be having it painted, but still entertaining the idea of matte or gloss black wrap...I am going to do a test section with Plasti-dip this weekend to see how it looks and if it will hold up. Will post a couple pics once I get a section done and my thoughts. It will be pretty expensice to paint all the trim, so if I can do it another way that doesn't look cheap I will probably go that route.

Have you done anything to the window trim?

I tried plasti dip and failed. I would recommend gloss black vinyl wrap. More expensive, but worth it. Paint scares me on chrome too.

I was hesitant to do this based on pricing...but I keep coming back to this method...and I think you just solidified my approach. Thanks!! Can you post some pictures? Close up and in direct/non-direct sunlight? Thanks again!

Re: 14' SRT "Jack" Mod Thread

Got the Corsa BLK cat-back installed today...haven't had enough time to hear it, but wow does it sound a lot different than stock!! I had my resos chopped on my stock so it sounded nice, but this is a great combo between louder than stock but mellow under normal driving conditions...JUST what I was looking for.

Will post some videos and more feedback after the weekend!

I did not pull the (-) battery terminal for the install for any of the interior/exterior lights. I have been told you are supposed to, but this did not create any issues for my install.

Little confused on your other question...upper dash trim? You talking about the overhead console/map lights? There are a couple great install threads...here you go:
