    Did mine, but they were off the car:




    And you could argue about the rice - but the factory painted them red in the first place - I just repainted them and swapped decals.

    2000 SS Black M6

    i painted mine red, looks good IMO. i did it 8 months ago, no problems so far. got a kit from oreillys for like 20 bucks.

    i just took off my wheels and rotated back and forth, didnt take the caliper off. took a couple hours to do enough coats.

    Get them powdercoated, get your decals, spray alittle clear over them, and there you go, they will last a very long time.

    Now that looks very good.
