2005 To chrome or not to chrome

Your car, your choice. I’ve done the hood scoop, rocker panels, taillight bezels, and protective trim on the sail panel to prevent hardtop scratches. I keep going back and forth on the taillights in my mind. My daughter likes them so they’re staying. One day it will be hers when I’m too old to drive it.

I have the tail light bezels coming. I may do the rocker panels but I think I def. want some nice decorative side chrome to protect the doors.

My '03 has the "too much" for my taste. But with respect for the PO and the fact it would be a pain to remove... it stays. He liked lots of "bling" and added about everything he could find for the retro and then some. That said... It does turn some heads!
just ordered the slightly extended chrome headlight brows for a more 57 effect along with the taillight bezels. May do the chrome surround around the grill an some side chrome (more to protect the doors than anything else.

Got my chrome taillight bezels from Thunderbird specialties. I believe they have the door handle surrounds as well but they come in a bundle with fog light and marker light surrounds. Where did you get your chrome side strips? would love to see a photo. Thanks
I put a smaller chrome trim and I like the look of it.....I saw it on a black TBird and looked nice. I dint want a larger molding to over take the look, Just my appeal ......still looking for door handle covers.......would like to see more chrome.,,,we all have our way of dressing up our TBIRDS.....Did you like the bezels you bought? send a picture please...

Here's my tail light bezels and the extended chrome eyebrows which I added a 1/8th" bead of chrome to the edge to beef up the look a bit, I like them very much. I also added the chrome surround around the grill and the hood scoop trim
