Hey, I was just wondering if a 99 SE-L trunk bar would fit on my 96 sentra xe? I'm sick of the stock reflector trunk bar and would like to get a solid bar or an SE-L bar to help on looks.

Also, has anyone just tried to paint the bar the color of their car? Just a solid colored trunk bar would look better.

Thanks guys,

yup
plenty of guys have changed thiers
SE-L bars are pretty hard to come by
some guys use the solid black bar from some GXEs (i think)

The GXE bar works just as well. I don't know if you car is black but the bar will look a bit like carbon fiber (guess the GXE had a different shade of black as a factory color.) But you'll only notice the difference up close.

And finding the SE-L bar is going to be a PITA.

I was lucky and found a black one, I've been looking for an SE-L trunk bar since about july with no luck, and I'm just half assing it now. I'm happy with the black, but if a sel trunk bar comes by I'll get it.

Several have painted them, go to the "show us your" thread for some of em.

I believe the black came on the XE, not the GXE I have a GXE and mine was red, unless they did it for the earlier b14 and went red later on.

thats the blackish carbon fiber just like mine, the se-l has a more realistic looking carbon fiber I believe.

you could also use this.

its a vinyl "sticker" this site also has colors so you could use that instead of paint (paint dosnt turn out how you want it 99.5% of the time) and then you can simply peel the sticker off. if you put black vinyl on the rear bar, and blacked out the tails with the light tint vinyl (but left the turn signal amber)that would look pretty cool :thumbup:
