imo. these cars are made for chrome.
The late 80's and early 90's painted look in real time says economy to me.
I'm no man of $ but I'd save up for chrome...which is exactly what I'm doing now. Bought some repro stuff that doesn't fit well...saving for rechroming original stuff.
I do like the look of painted bumpers on some 55's, but don't think they would look too good on a 56 and definately not on a 57, although, in saying this i have never seen painted bumpers on a 56 or 57......
jim 57 love the black just what i needed to see ,and rod man i think they will look good also,i think i will eliminate the guards and have them smoothed right out .if you guys look at my car i have changed everything i could think of i was going to make my own bumpers and have them chromed because when i had the front bumper off i really liked the profile heck man ill keep thinking about it thanks every one ill post pics when im done
