89 CS Taillight Trim Chrome to Black

This mod is far too simple and unimpressive to warrant this level of procrastination, but procrastinate is what I do best. :shrug:

I've never liked the chrome trim on the 89 Cutlass taillights.  Once, I Photoshopped them to black and I decided I like that much better.

Terrible photochop, but the point is when I made it, Modified Date: Friday, October 16, 1998.

Only took me 22 years, 1 month, and 8 days to get around to getting it done.

Don't ask me when I'm going to get that bumper repainted. ūüėÖ

Yes, I think it looks much better!  Nice job!  Better WAY late than never, LOL!

I have a 91 International coupe with the factory blacked out trim.  As another International owner to another...I want more pics of your car!!!

I thought International coupes came with black instead of chrome on the tail lights. Or were the early ones all chrome regardless of trim level?

Correct.  My 89 International parts car had the chrome.  88-90 coupes no matter what trim level had the chrome strip.  This includes the 90 verts.  91 International cars and verts got the black ones.  91 coupes like your two cars still had chrome right?

Yep! Both of my 91 coupes have chrome and not black.
