    I've heard detail shops do this. I'm curious as to if they use a flat, matte, or gloss black. I'd assume matte but don't know.

    Do not paint the front wells, just simply remove the wheel and remove the inside liner. You can clean it and use some vinyl or plastic cleaner to make them look new again. On the rear, I painted mine with Gloss black and it looks killer. Nothing worse than seeing a clean car with kick ass wheels and horid wheel wells.

    While you have the passenger side wheel well removed, do the wiring mod for under the hood while you have it off. It is an easy mod that cleans up the engine bay very nicely. That is where I got the idea of cleaning mine front fender wells. Clean and paint the suspension pieces while you are in there too. I know, I just gave you a list of things to do that will take up the better part of a day, but the end result will be awesome.
