'13-'14 Hood vents

Have a '14 silver GT. I want to swap out the silver hood vents for black ones. I cannot find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I can purchase direct swap black ones? (I know I can have mine painted, not interested.) I tried the AM vinyl hood vent stickers and they are terrible IMO. Thanks.

I've never used plastidip. I would be concerned that the heat from the flamethrower of an engine bay would have an adverse effect.

People plastidip their exhaust tips. I think he'll be fine. Mine are holding up great through 8k miles .

I have logged about 14k miles with the plasti dip on my vents and they look as good as day 1. No issues.

How does it work with washing, etc? Do you have to do anything different as to not accidentally peel or ruin the finish while washing/detailing?

No you don't, it's just a peel able rubberized coating. I have directly pressure washed wheels that have plasti dip and all it does is clean them. Now, if you use your finger nail and catch the edge of it then you can peel away at the plastidip, but it isn't going anywhere

OP,

Not sure if you're interested in Carbon Fiber, but there's always the BMC CF direct replacement hood vents. They look awesome IMO, and match other colors well like black.

Just wanted to through out another option!
