I like the silver. The dual ovals in the grille is one of the most important style cues for the 1971 version. To hide that degrades from the style IMO. Yes the black looks good on some cars but I think this black out everything is way overdone. 95% of the Challengers on the lots here have the Blacktop package. I almost traded for a new one but for that.

My scatpack comes blacked out, but I do like the look of the contrasting silver/chrome insert of the other models and like mjb4450 said it defines the 1971 retro style. I've seen red overlays and now carbon fiber, is there an easy way to simulate the silver/chrome on my black grille short of painting? I was thinking foil tape or something.

You guys make some excellent points regarding the grille. I appreciate the photos as well! I added additional voting choices as well...thank you for those options.

I think the most durable option is to have your bezels powder coated in a high-gloss silver. It will certainly be more durable than a painted surface.

Can they be removed as two pieces? I didn't think they were metal, but it would be cool to powdercoat. So is the stock color more like an argent silver or chrome?

Yep, they can be removed as two pieces, but the front fascia will need to be removed to be able to remove them from the grille. It’s an argent/silver color, not chrome.
