Default 97 SE Chrome Delete [Pics inside]

I can't remember where I saw it, but i remember seeing someone on one of the bonneville clubs\forums mention that they got rid of the chrome with black pinstripe on their black bonneville. I would imagine this would be possible on other color cars as well, but with mixed results.

Pics, for your viewing pleasure:

Thanks! And i know what you're saying. Its on the low end models. Normally you'd think chrome = expensive = high end, but not in this case.

The chrome never looks like it belongs there. Almost looks like a after thought. Makes for a nice change though.
