    IMHO, no. I like the OE "look" myself plus I think from a distance it may give the illusion that you're missing the bezels. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Depends on what look your going for. I painted all my chrome due to the type of paintjob and bumpers I put on it. Of course I am not a big fan of chrome myself. Whatever suits you. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    When I painted my grill black, I also painted the pieces around the headlights. Looks pretty good in my honest opinion. [​IMG]
