    If they were B&B you'd leave well enough alone. But they're not, so...

    I like the blacked out look, may do that on my car! But mine is black with the red I think I would stick to chrome look myself.

    The mufflers aren't chrome. The tips are. I blacked out the mufflers(raw stainless), and left the tips chrome.

    Personally I'd leave them, but the blacked out doesn't look bad.
