FROM THIS

TO THIS
For me this is a big change, what do you guys think? I kinda like is but I kinda like the way it looked before. I will leave them on for a bit to see if I can get used to it.

I think without tints the white pillars look better. But if you tint the windows, the black pillars will be pissah. Arrow

Just for reference Wink :

I don't know....still on the fence. Only got one side done, and I keep looking at it. I can't make up my mind. But I almost think I may leave it white.

I hope you used electrical tape so if you did not like it, you could pull it off.

I am for leaving it white til tint.

I used black vinyl. I don't know, I'm looking at Crovos car and it looks very classy with the tinted window and the white pillars. Not to sound racist but my car is just too white for any black Laughing

Don't paint them, use vinyl applique so you can peel it off, or Plastidip. haha.

I think there is a constitutional amendment that states all 1991-1996 B-bodies that are all white shall have black door pillars. Look it up. Wink

cheers That's exactly what I'm sayin'! I think the white against the black windows looks great. Breaks it up.

The black pillars look cheap, like we didn't feel like wasting paint at the factory to paint that small part. Black pillars look "unfinished"

No, just some people like the black, and some like the white...lol

I will say it depends on how much black and white is all over the whole car. I had/have black wheels on that car, the black grille, etc., so it looked good and when I did it people commented on how much better and different they thought it looked...Rob's car is like all white with some chrome...soooo

If it was a caprice or 92 occ, they'd be black. Wink But the Roadies have the raised C pillar that breaks the chrome outline. And when you black those out, it looks like total ass. Just google pics for tigeraids wagon...

While I don't think that looks like total absolute "ass" I do agree, but I think that might look cool with JUST the B pillar area blacked out...to give a Buick hardtop wagon effect with the windows:





Or maybe I was just looking for an excuse to post pics of one of my favorite cahs...

Well, I took the black off. Been staring at it for 2 days, I just didn't like it. You were right. The white is classy and finished looking. If I ever get the windows tinted I may check it out again. Thanks again for all of your input guys cheers as usual I appreciate it. Oh and here is the one thing that I did to it that I really liked from the second I put it on.

Vintage , used off of a 1969 Camaro fender.
