    Go for Stickers. Try out with 3M glossy stickers.

    gopscreative go to the local radium wala and ask him to put Black Glossy Vinyl on B Pillar. It will be cost effecting and will look great too.

    Vinyl is usually glossy in nature right? But the stock ones will be non glossy.What do you guys think? Glossy surface or Non glossy one?
  5. i will prefer non glossy ones .. I find that as more classic ..

    You can get glossy as well as Matt finished vinyl in market.

    Since last few month Matt Finished Vinyl used on B Piller of FIAT cars. Earlier it was in Glossy finish.

    My 90HP has matt finished vinyl on B Pillar and my Punto 1.2 Emotion (Sept 2010) had a Glossy vinyl on B pillar.

    Gops, it is a personal matter of choice - I prefer matt finish over glossy. If you get it done, do post pictures and price.

    I had refrained from the B pillar blackouts because I am a bit apprehensive about how the stickers are cut to fit the pillar spaces. I mean do they actually use a knife or a blade or any other sharp object? If yes then this would leave scratches on the paint. I am planning to do a DIY, but still cant figure out how to cut the stickers without scratching the paint.
