Black A-Pillars?

Default Black A-Pillars?

I did a search and didn't see anything. Just curious if anyone has blacked out thier A-pillars "GTR style" or Photoshoped it. I'd be curious to see what it looked like especially on white. I'm sure it would be easy to do with flat black vinyl too.

The Z and GTR have very similar looking roof lines, I don't see why it wouldn't look good but I'd still like to see it.

If there's a vinyl vendor here I would think making a pattern and cranking out gloss and flat black a-pillar covers would be easy money. Easy to remove later also. Maybe I should do it lol.

ASK BLUE BAT!!! Or do it yourself. Just grab a yard or two of vinyl. Wrap it around and exacto the edges in a nice clean manner.

I think it looks better painted rather than black.

That looks pretty good.

They make Vinyl now-a-days that is flat or gloss and looks like clear coated paint. There were guys doing it on M3's with the gloss all the time on the roof panel to emulate the CSL.

I was thinking gloss would probably look better since it's reflective properties would help it blend with the glass. Especially tinted glass. Thanks for posting a pic of an example.
