OMG, the two tone rocker idea is awesome I wish I had thought of that . (files that idea for future). If it were me though I would go black so they would tie in with bra, unless you're not going to put it back on.

Lowering her a tad would give her a nice look but remember ride qaulity will suffer, I don't like lowered cars myself because of the way I like to bomb down back roads
But it would make her grip a bit more through the turns.

And for the love of God, tint those tails, she would look sooo hot, tinting the tails on the General is by far the most favorite thing I've done to it.

Black rockers make it look like there'* more space under the car, which would cancel out the lowering.

Down that low, you could do chrome rockers on a silver car and not have that effect.

I'm not sure on the grey rockers. I love the look on the 300M Special, but for the Bonneville it doesn't look quite natural.

In some cases, I'm inclined to agree with you. But I'm not doing black, it would be grey or darker silver at the most.

Plus, chrome rockers seem kinda cheesy....

If you try it, use a lighter gray metallic, just 3 or so shades darker than your OEM paint.

Looking at that picture I was thinking that car might look good with black from the bottom of that mid moulding on down.
