Black chrome. Finally summed up the courage to mask off the grille trim and spray on DupliColor Shadow. I'm in love with the results, did the badge too.

Also Dipped the chin while I was at it. What do you think?

I'll get some daylights up tomorrow.

Black chrome looks nice :D I've been wanting to do that too. Actually I have glossy black vinyl over the chrome trim right now but wanted to change it to black chrome vinyl after seeing it on a car the other day at the vinyl shop. Good work :)

The chin dip is the reason I am not getting the appearance package, well that and cost. Can you post pictures of the exact cans used to accomplish this? I think that would be helpful. Any Technique used also. It looks clean and I have a feeling people are going to jump on this.

I am so glad you did this because I had mentioned this VERY same thing about a few weeks ago. I was thinking of getting the red mz3 and looked into that shadow product, The results look fantastic and has made my final decision, I just hope it would hold up, I don't like chrome and think it makes a car look very cheap(too plastic) I think black chrome makes it classy and sporty, nice job and thank you again!

I'd only use the black chrome paint on a black car. Every other color [car] I'd paint standard jet black gloss paint.

you mean I should have left the chrome trim alone? I don't like chrome personally. All of it has to go. :)
