I've seen old Pontiac Grand Am's that had this and I think it looked cheesy but that was on that car and of course I'm sure the guy who did it thought it looked awesome. My $.02.

black would work tho, or, getting the whole thing re-chromed so it's all chrome like.

put a piece of red posterboard there to see if you like the look. if you do, go nuts, if you dont, you saved yourself a buttload of time.

Leave is the way it is or get a billet insert. Please don't paint it.

The red and crome trim just doesn't add up. The idea of a chrome billet add-on sounds better. And if you paint it everything that sticks to it while driving at night will just mess it up. Good Luck
