I'm a simple guy when it comes to modifying the visual part of a car.

And for this new one I plan on doing the following....

1. Darken Windows

2. Chrome Pillers

---

3. Can anyone tell me how to achieve the chrome look that some modded Chrysler 300 side mirrors have?

I'm not certain I know what you mean, but if it's a chromed exterior mirror housing, the usual method of changing that part of the appearance is some sort of replacement housing or stick-on cover that goes over the factory housings. I haven't really looked into this for cars (or even ran into it before), but it's a pretty commonly available thing for truck modders.

Chrome mirrors???? Hmmm....Wonder what that would look like.

by the way - Pizza Man did the chrome pillars and it turned out really nice. There is a thread in here with pictures.

Yup, thanks.

And yeah, I meant the chrome housing.

like this one...



Besides the wheels and grill I think it looks hot. I'm looking to make the similar changes on mine besides the chrome and wheels of course :cool:

Yup, minus the Grill and Wheels it looks real good.

And yeah, I found the Malibu 2008 pillars on a website for about 100.

I know they just snap on but I want to get my windows tinted before I do that. Trying to save money :mad:

In The Shadows - PM Pizza Man - He ordered some recently and was overall pleased although if memory serves correctly he wishes they were about a 1/4" longer.

There should be a thread in here (Modifications Section) about them.

Here's the link to the Chrome Pillar posts, DOACanada mentioned.

Mine didn't snap on. They're applied with 3M double-sided adhesive.

Yeah, I saw that. It looks exactly how I want it. You say they applied it with 3M double-sided abhesive, that sounds better than just snapping it on because that way seems more secure do you agree?

Did you just order the pillars and ask a car dealership to apply them? Or did you order different pillars than the normal snap on ones?

I am going to order the chrome pillars either this week or next week I believe.

I feel the double sided tape is the only way to go for longevity. I went thru a car wash with to trouble. I wish they wrapped the pillar to aid the positioning process. Once these puppies are put on you'll need to crowbar to remove them. I ordered them from e-bay for about $55. The seller is always listed there.
