If it makes any difference...uh.....my 71 chevy has chrome everywhere. But then again...everything is real chrome and who really thinks a monochromatic 71 chevy stepside looks good? lol.

BTW, Ford does still use "real" chrome from the factory. Now the cheap replacement parts the body shop puts on, thats a different story.

On Mazdas, they call having everything painted "Monochromatic" and it's a no-cost option on the B-series. I've got chrome and I love it. It's just personal preference.

I think it really depends on the color. Like peopel said DSG and chrome don't look to hot but black or yellow like your chebby look awesome.

I think crome is really ugly on the smaller trucks, looks good on a fullsize. I like my matching bumpers and flares (I just don't like how the flares discolored)

sorry, i don't know what the hell i was thinking. upper front is painted, lower is grey textured. rear's painted.

Oh ok mine's red and I can't stand it. Wish I had gotten it with a more subtle color. Truck stands out in the woods like a signal flare.

Let me correct you....Sonic blue.

Now.....lets not start this again. lol. No color threads people...pleasefor the love of god...no color threads.



Yea...the most common color abbreviations i see are DSG and DWB. DSG has been already answered....DWB is Deep Wedgewood Blue.
