Took in my Jeep for a chrome delete and got everything wrapped except the front grill and exhaust. I also left the badging and lettering. Since I have a black Jeep, I wanted to keep some accent chrome. The owner convinced me to get gloss black and I was really regretting that decision until I saw it. Gloss black was absolutely right as everything blends in and looks like the black paint. The only thing I could see satin is the window surround, but I am happy with everything gloss. It really makes the Jeep look like it always should have in my opinion. I love it!!!

The owner also suggested doing the grill squares and/or the door handles in blue (same blue as the e) but I'm glad I said no to that. I like it more simple.

They accidentally wrapped the grill surrounds, which I had them unwrap. They actually looked pretty good. I think it looks great either way but best with the surrounds unwrapped. I kept one of the pics with it wrapped in case anyone wanted to see what it looked like.

Personal preference. I would go with gloss on a gloss black car though. It looks more 'of the whole', unless there are certain lines you're trying to draw subtle attention to, and I can't really think of anything that would work well with on this car. If you had Baltic gray, I could see an argument for matching the finish of the anthracite 'satin' look of the wheels, but on gloss black, I would probably stay with gloss.

I have come around on the gloss black. I agree with Sarge that it makes the trim look "more of the whole". I do think satin on the window surround would have been fine too but I'm fine with the gloss black. It really makes the Jeep look amazing. I do think I'm going to have him unwrap the grill surrounds so that it pops a little more.
