    I don't think it looks that bad, not that I would do it. I think there are cars that it would look a lot worse on.

    Heh... he chromed everything. We were a family that loved chrome
    I'm right there with ya. Ever since the big 3 started doing all this mono chrome theme on new cars I haven't really liked much of anything that's been produced. Everything needs a splash a chrome on it to break things up.
    The only thing that I see chrome on anymore are new trucks.

    And you bring up a great point. That's why the polished stainless rear view mirrors were removed on production cars after 1970 (for GM anyway). In 71 everything got a flat black backing instead. The polished stainless was causing glare issues at night for drivers coming the other way.
    Funny though, cars were still made with plenty of chrome in that time frame,,,,go figure

    I don't know about you, but I prefer people to see me coming at night. Seems people drive with a bind eye and can't see out the other
