This Diamond Anniversary I bought has a lot of the chrome blacked out, but the owner who did it used some kind of blackout tape and it doesn't look very good. Also, some of the chrome is not blacked out, including the grill. My first plan was to remove the tape and replace any bad chrome, but I talked to a guy who knew the owner who blacked it out and apparently there is quite a bit of defects in the chrome. Also, the blacked out look is starting to grow on me. Now I like it! I've already received the advice to paint all the chrome the color of the car, but I don't think I will go that route. I think matte black makes a good contrast to cordovan. Anyway, I'm getting long winded again so I'll get to the question: What's the best way to black-out the chrome and not spend a ton doing it?
