Good one, John, and new to me! That side chrome varies (pics) with the year of
production of the 1:1. Here is how I did my 1953 Hudson Hornet Hollywood, using Graphic Chart tape:

Here is the parts car, a 1952 Hornet covertible by Precision Miniatures, using paint similar to yours:

And here is my favorite treatment. However, it's not on a Hollywood but on the 2-door sedan by Team Calibre:

The old Team Calibre racing car had chrome side pieces, and it has my favorite treatment. I came fairly close to duplicating it. The painted treatment on the convertible parts car is a rather distant third. I wish the Team Calibre had been enlarged into other Hudsons, but that was produced about twenty years ago.
