Nice, if you like it, looks good with the red paint. Paves the way for other black accents / stripes on the body.

What is really funny is I liked it best with no bezel at all. This paint just peels off, may try red next.

Should I paint the rest of the chrome trim black? The bumper too?

Could you plastidip it to see it you liked it? Peel it off if you do not.

Unless you plan to black out the rest of your trim, when you redo your bezels, you might mask off the outer rim, and just paint the inner section. It makes a nice contrast, I think.

If you want the center bar to disappear, paint it body color.
