OK, so... paint it?

And, paint it to match the trim.

is there a DIY method to re-chrome that plastic??  I was wondering how I was going to resolve that issue.

The only thing I have found that works to replace the chrome stripe around the bezels on cars is a chrome foil that is used in modeling.  It's not cheap, it's very hard to work with and it will come off with too much handling but it does look a lot better than silver paint.  Another thought would be to paint the stripe to match the interior or exterior if you don't mind the non-stock appearance.

It about $20 for a couple sheets of it and you just need a steady had and a NEW exacto knife or razor blade. If dull it will tear. But its easy to work with. Its called bare metal foil

I had the same problem with my vent trim on my '89 and was able to find a new set of four on eBay. Hope this gives you some hope.
