Tail Light Bezels - Black or Chrome?

I just finished putting black tail light bezels on my Camaro. I had already done the LS7 fascia blackout and wanted to see what the complete package looked like. I bought flat black bezels but that didn't match the blackout stripe very well - repainted them w/ Krylon fusion in satin black and it was a dead on match.

Just curious to which you think looks better?

Chrome:


Satin Black:

black. I never been a fan of chrome trim on a red taillight. Red/black fits much better

I like the chrome when doing the entire balckout; provides a little healthy contrast. I think that's why they left it that way on the LS7 concept.

On your car I like the black... but since my lights are blacked out and I am going to be doing the LS7 style blackout as well I am going to keep the chrome. Just so something pops back there.

I would say Black out of the 2 but I think that Black Chrome would be a great compromise and would look fantastic.
