Default What's Plastic and Not?

Do like the chrome accent look on our LaCrosse. I don't know what's plastic plated or metal plated. Have a very strong suspicion grill is plastic chrome or nickel plated however, not metal at all. Same with door handles. I mean when the interior wood trim is plastic, lmao. Guess real wood is available for option though.

Hub caps? Those things with the shiny chrome look will not last through even 1 winter in ME due to the sand blasting effect and road salt. Today's OEM actual wheels are pretty good until new wheel weights are put on w/tires. Always seem to have that corrosion spot showing from where that old weight had been. Stick on weights a big plus now a days.

More to follow if I can think of something......

Well too, some of the aftermarket acc. are perfect. You don't want a lot of stick on chrome accents but maybe something like the door pillar sections. Most of the aftermarket stuff you won't ever recover $$ with a trade in. I'm one to do a little bit, not too much. Really liked the real wood dash I put in my road runner. This was a veneer self stick like a balsa. Looked OEM and the car had a wood (plastic) steering wheel to start with.
