I did the paint stripe along the belt line filiform corrosion. I knew that I could never match the silver, so went darker gunmetal gray and "sealed" the paint edge with 1/4" vinyl pinstripe. I think that it looks pretty good and didn't cost much at all. Click image for larger version

Yes, I like the look and it is an option. The trim option is not difficult. I had a few areas too that had filiform besides the belt line. One area was the stove vent. The corrosion extended out a ways so I ended up buying a stainless stove vent, some Airstream aluminum and making a squared frame of aluminum to go around the stove vent which I riveted on. The other spot was around the teardrop lights.
