Default Is too much chrome a bad idea?

Okay, I do like chrome and when I see it on o ther cars I like it. But is it good on a mustang for one? Never seen them have it. I may have a good deal on a paint job I want and might add hood scoops and window scoops... This is in the making hehe... But yeah... I would get it full black and I wanted to maybe add chrome handle covers... chrome side mirror covers... and some 18 " chrome wheels. I see this on other cars and love it, but is it tacky for one thing.... And will it look good on a mustang?

Chrome isn't really my thing on a Mustang but to each his own. The chrome rims don't bother me but the door handles and mirror covers don't really seem to fit. Just my opinion though! It's your baby so do what you love!

I really like the chrome in the front end. Gives it a retro look. Too much can be bad, though. UP to you!

I'm not all hot to trot on a lot of chrome on these personally. More than the wheels and you might as well slap a GMC emblem on it! (Gimme More Chrome). =)

I love chrome. I'd put some on my stang but i'm going with the black out theme. If I was going to put chrome on, my chrome items would be deffenitly the MUSTANG letters on the trunk, chrome wheels, chrome door handles, some '67-'68 mustang mirrors (I've seen a pair of '67 shelby mustang mirrors put on a s197 looked awesome), chrome pony corral, and the little chrome strip that goes around the grill.

I will be getting chrome rims sooner or later. As far as anything else being chrome, not for me. To each his own.

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of chrome on cars...never have been really. I guess I'm just not the "bling-bling" kind of person. Whatever chrome pieces or accents that are on my '06 v6 will probably be the most chrome that will ever be on my car. My next set of wheels will either be black, or a polished silver (?) color. But I guess to each his (or her) own, I'd like to keep it mild and sane instead of wild and crazy.

I'm not a huge fan of the hoodpins or headlight mods on this car, but I do like the chrome border around the grille.

There is this stuff called "flexichrome" that maybe could be used to create the parnelli jones effect...

Normally I'd say whatever floats your boat, but since when I see mustangs driving down the street, and I see myself in the reflection of all the chrome, I'm embarassed for the both of us:

On a non-import car I'd limit the chrome to the wheels, anywhere else on the car and you shoulda bought an import.

For the same reason lambo doors should be left for Exotics, whiteouts for honda's, well you get my point... :-)
