White truck needs black housings.

I'm in a quandry... I really like the complete blacked-out look, but I'm really undecided whether to leave the reflector bowls and projector shrouds chrome or paint the whole thing black.

Chrome looks more factory, black looks more epic.

Once you go black....well, the chrome is gone at that point, so you can never go back.
