Default B piller blackout film

Hello bhpians!

I own an Accent, and it has body coloured B pillers which looks out of place.

New gen cars comes with factory made Black B- pillers.
now are they painted black or just any black film over them?

How to make my car's B piller black? paint them or any flimsy black film work?

PS: how would an accent look with both A and B pillers Black?just like swift

pour in ur suggestions guys...

Instead of painting them, there are these mat-finish type stickers avilable. Get them, they look really good. I've got them, cost arnd Rs75.

Try checking with your local hyundai dealer. Even my Accent had body coloured B-pillars. Got them changed to black - matt finish stickers at Hyundai service center. Might cost more, but quality never comes cheap. These black stickers were offered with Tornado version from 2004 onwards. So, dealers usually stock them.

Most stationary's should have black vinyl. Could get it cut out and stuck on. The number plate wallah too has got different vinly finishes and will cut and fit for around 400rs. Got mine at the stationary for rs12 a meter and did a DIY.
