I see what you meant about the black strip around the edge of the rear window, and how your vinyl idea wouldn't have blocked any vision. That was actually really good thinking. Since your a pretty creative person, and open to new ideas.. I've wondered about the idea of blacking out the recessed area around the liscence plate. My car is orange, with orange with black as my whole color scheme. Ive never seen it before, which is a bonus, just not sure if that would look to clunky. Plus it would be a large piece of vinyl. Any opinions on it?
