    This is what I've been working on for the past couple months.. I'm down to the finishing touches. What color trim should I use for the sides/top of my arcade cabinet?

    The choices are red and chrome.

    Gotta agree with this.
    Both on either side would look best.

    Well, red would show age/wear less easily.

    can you get a brushed metal? you would get the benefits of it not ending up all "fingerprinty" along with maintaining a nice black w/ silver accents appearance

    I'd say large red stripe with chrome stripe in the middle. If that's not feasible I'd go with chrome on the left and red on the right to complement the theme on the banner. Chrome on right and red on left would feel kind of overkill on the theme, in my opinion.
