What color did you get? As long as you take your time it will look fine, unless the color sucks. I painted these and had no issues.

Dude do your own thing! Don't let others bring you down! If you like your car and the things you do to it that is all that matters!

I did, I thought it looked unfinished without it painted. It really just depends on what you think.
