I stopped by the auto parts store after work today. Because the garage at my house is narrow, and I have children, the possibility of the door edges getting dinged against the garage walls is very high. The only two options for door edge guards were chrome and black. Not only do I think the chrome ones look cheesy, but my experience with them back in the '80s was that they only look good for about a year before they start loosing their luster. So, I bought the black ones and put them on both the front and rear doors. With all of the black that is already on the car, black was a good choice. I was really surprised at how good they looked once they were put on. I'm not sure what it is, but they actually added something to the looks of the car. I'll take some pics tomorrow if anyone is interested in seeing what they look like.
