    Question Blacked out window trim.....what do you think?

    On a Black Marauder, do you prefer to leave the chrome window trim as it is, or would you like to see the window trim black? The first picture is mine with the chrome window trim as is, the second picture is Lidio's Marauder with the window trim blacked out-both cars have the same window tinting. Just a curiosity question, which do you like best?

    Question Option 2... Blacked out window trim.

    Do you think the blacked out window trim adds to the badness of the black Marauder? I do....

    Yes, I MUST know!!

    And, don't bet that it won't make my car faster. My fender badges gave me at least a .5 second advantage. Just ask Todd as I passed his sorry arse in Ennis. When he starts to tell you about his "Grand Touring" issue, you can just stop listening (I know I do!!).

    Secondly, you beat me by .4 of a second...and as a wise man told me recently..."don't hate me if I want to spend more than 14 seconds in my car...and not only go in a straight line"

    And...

    That's a tough choice they both look good.

    But if your going for an evil demonic car to run down James Brolin in, go with the black. Then you can replace the grille badge with a pentagram.

    IF you do decide to go black-out I believe a few here have done the paint-it route and some the TrimBrite black-out tape.

    Me ... I went with 3M Scotchcal™ Striping Tape using three widths to correspond to the sections of the trim; 3/8" - top, 1/2" bottom, and 2" for the rear. Part#s for each are available in sig' link under Modifications:.

    Why ? Little to no trimming ( EXCEPT on the rear section ) and the quality of 3M's striping tape.

    If anyone is interested I'll deal on enough tape for both sides; let me know.

    Why ? The 3/8" and 1/2" tape comes in 150' and the 2" comes in 50', so I've got plenty left over.

    *If I remember correctly the rolls are $20-$30 each.

    Example ..... my it's not a Marauder Crown Vic'

    I don't like it............

    the chrome window trim 'balances' the chrome wheels from an aesthetic point of view. with blacked out trim, the wheels seem out of place against a black car.

    but heck, what do I know-I can barely match my own clothes.

    I prefer the chrome... but again, it's only my personal opinion, which holds approximately the equivalent worth of about 2 shiny pennies (okay, one of them is slightly rusted... ) and nothing more.

    I do like the all-blacked-out look, for sure it adds greatly to the Bad-Assedness(tm) of the Marauder, but in my own situation, I was looking for touch of luxury.

    I agree with 'poke...
