    Did all '78 Z28's have chrome or black or maybe both window trims? Seems I am seeing them with both.

    The mouldings were black unless the Z21 Style Trim Group option was ordered. The Z21 option got you the bright moulding on the drip rails, door edges (lock pillar), hood and belt mouldings.

    But not around the windows themselves?

    I am now wondering how it would look to paint the chrome ones I got black. Suppose I would use SEM paint?

    Thanks much.

    All Z28's came originally with black window moldings. My car has the Z21 option like Blades said, and it still came with black moldings around the windows.

    Front and rear window trim was black on 78-81 Z28s.
    The drip rails were never black from the factory.

    The Z28 came with blacked out window trim unless the Z21 Style Group was ordered. With the Z21 option the factory was known to put the bright window moulding on the Z28, though not in all cases.
