Default NO windshield trim

Has anyone NOT put the stainless trim on the front or rfear glass gasket?
I'm doing a black-out mod on my 55 210 4dr LS3/6spd manual. The body color is a emerald green Kandy. The grill and surrounding molding are power coated semi-gloss/satin black as well as the head light rings and parking light trim. The quarter molding up to the rear doors is also powdered black. The bumpers are powdered black. The complete engine compartment is accessories are black (holley), as is the high ram intake and valve covers.
So I thought I would save some money and not go to the expense of powder coating the front and rear glass trim and just not use it. I'm a little concerned it might look ugly with the seam for the trim. Any thoughts

55 model 150s didn't have stainless around the front or rear windshields. The rubber for those models has no groove for it. That's what you want to achieve the look you're after.

I think it would look better with powder coated stainless. Rubber just doesn't look right.

That's good news I did not know. I guess I always look at 210 and belair's. Thanks
And yes, I am struggling with doing the stainless black.
