I think flat black would look good but then will it look like it was just stuck on there whereas the red would look like part of the car

Re: Side scoop paint issues torch red

it will be very hard to match with spray paint, go flat black or let a shop paint them to match

Re: Side scoop paint issues torch red

the flat black wouldnt be bad. you already have the red/black theme going so it def wouldnt be out of place

So I called to see if I could get any paint to match that's going to be so spendy as opposed to the 2 dollar can of flat black spray paint haha how about I slap them on there black and take some pictures then post them to get some opinions from y'all?

yea, just keep in mind if they are stuck on you will want to pull them back off to paint the, dont ever want to paint something like that on the car... just asking for over spray.

Re: Side scoop paint issues torch red

I agree with some of the aboe have them painted by a shop. It may cost a bit more but in the end I think you will be much happier.
