    Looks unreal! Love it. Going to have to see what the local paint guy can figure out! Im guessing it was relatively easy to color match. Did you do it yourself?

    Had my paint guy do it and took about 3 days because I wanted the trim removed.

    A complete pain in the ass. The upper pieces are held by clips and two sided tape. However if you bend them, crease them, or even tweek them...they are very challenging to reinstall correctly.

    The bottom pieces are held by clips and tabs. The tabs break unless your completely take apart the inside of the door.

    If I were to do this to another SHO I would just buy all new window trim pieces from Tasca Parts get them painted and then install with all new clips and tabs included. It would save me time, energy, and sanity.

    I did all my chrome with vinyl that I found on ebay that had the same metallic finish as the paint. Turned out decent without being a permanent mod. just haven't done the rear piece yet. Taurus Ceramic.jpg

    Are your flowers powder coated or painted?

    I keep going back to look at your wheels. I really like them.

    It is surprising how much the whole flower look goes away just by making the wheel a solid color.

    It really does. Looks much more aggressive and more like a solid wheel. Not the daisy spinners.
