I've seen the odd pic's of people who've blacked out the fronts, but the pics were never really that... good? anyways, how do you guys think this looks? should I do it? or leave the chrome... I'm really on the fence.

Looks nice man, I have been thinking of replacing my grille with mesh one but I don't want to do all of the work of removing and replacing the front fascia. This maybe a better option. Just want to do something to make it stand out more. Good job, is that a wrap of some sort?

Photoshop :shhh: hehe I never do anything aesthetically before I chop it to see first. I'm thinking plastidip with a glossifier over top? I dont really know if this is something I want permanent yet. Wraps I find are difficult to get perfect.. or maybe its just me lol.

Plasti Dip?

I plasti dipped all my chrome, front and back (including emblems and window trim on the sides) I haven't done my wheels yet, but I love it. It seems kind of flimsy when it's first applied, but once it's fully cured, it's hard and I don't have any issues when I clean it or anything.

I plastidipped my chrome on my Black Raven too. Had it on for about 6 months and took it off. Started to look like sun faded rubber which is exactly what it was. I dont mind the chrome because its not a true mirror chrome. Thinking about wrapping the door chrome in black then everything else in a satin graphite...

I like the blackout look but in paint and vinyl not plastidip.

I was thinking about using this stuff

wors case I always have my own spray booth I could do it in, maybe a gloss black/clear mix to just give the chrome a black smoke look..

IMO if you gonna bother, why not murder out the car while you're at it? Murdering out completely means flat black paint, tinted windows, blacks wheels, black lug nuts, black trim, smoked lights and emblems and every little silver or gray object peeking out i painted black. Leaving the emblem or anything else non blacked defeats the whole purpose of doing this, making it look "uncomplete".

I've done the whole murdered out thing, my SS cobalt was. I just love the look of the front end glossed black, I HATE the factory 17"'s on this car and I hate them even more flatblack, looks cheap (no offense to anyone) but I just dont like flat black wheels.... especially these ones (17") if I'm ever getting black rims they'd be black chrome.

Stevo,
Would you be good enough to run one with just the wreath blacked out? Sometimes just a little bit will do it.
Thanx,

No sir it looks good. I like the black out.The car looks wider in the front for some reason with that.I like murdered out cars. I will do some like that as well. I just don't want to do all of it because I will have a little chrome on the wheels.[COLOR="Silver"]

Steve... Looking long and hard at both pics, it sure makes car look wider and more muscular in all black.
