    chrome on modern cars and trucks= very little, accent only for things like badging and trim. large area's no.

    chrome on classic cars and bikes= yes, that works

    I only like chrome on silver or indigo ink.

    I just realized that it cost more to get things in black. For instance, when buying a car grille insert the black powder coated ones cost more. The speaker enclosure with black carpet cost more. More money when it comes to powder coating sliders and bumpers. It cost me more money to change my chrome grille surround to black.:D
