Need your opinion jg

Was thinking of buying the chrome window trim. But I wont have the rear quarter panel covered. Do you think it will look weird?

Here is a photoshop I provided. Top pic with quarter panel chrome, Bottom is without. Slight difference, but will it look off?

Thanks to Elvis, Used his pic for reference.

Re: Need your opinion jg

I did this mod Mamba and the rear windows are pretty cheap on www.car-part.com The problem is if the salvage yard is not close...they dont like to ship them. It only cost me $100 to have my old ones removed and the new ones installed. Also...believe it or not...I sold the black moldings and rear windows for more thasn I paid for the chrome moldings new and the rear 1/4 windowss used.

Re: Need your opinion jg

I actually don't think it looks that bad with the rear quarter left black... that is a pic though. Wonder how it'd look in person.

Wowzers @ the price you got. I'll look into that. I had kausekaos wanting to trade the rear quarter panels a few weeks ago but I havent heard from him or anything. (he wants to black out the srt). So if I cant get the rear quarter, I will just leave it black.

Yeah I agree. One of our members here DAVY27 has the rear quarter black and rest chrome. Looks kinda good but he wants to get it also.

I just want it to accent the chrome from the brush guard and bumper guards I have. Some people like their cars to have some sort of bling.

Re: Need your opinion jg

I voted no. IMO only do it if you plan on completing the chrome trim. If the rear black is only temt than I understand. I say all or nothing... IMO

Re: Need your opinion jg

I voted no too. I think the rear quarter trim finishes the look of perfectly.

Not saying it looks bad without it tho - 'cos it doesn't.
