    Rice or not???

    I painted my speak grilles red. Took my time. Lots of prep and they turned out great and everyone complements them.. Now the side vents in the fenders... I want to do them red as well.. But Im afraid they might be overkill.

    Anyone got pics of theirs.. if painted???

    I think im painting the ram air grilles red too...

    Anything on the exterior, if done in red, should be dark and shiny, almost like a blood-colored chrome. If you do it too bright, it'll look cheap IMO. As long as its tastefully done, red on black looks great. There really isnt much that you can do to overkill a black car with red.

    Try getting some of the duplicolor exterior spray on/wash off paint. See how you like it.

    josh, i think you could risk going overboard with the red on black theme. Honestly-i think it's a bit played out anymore. i think our metallic lettering would really pop on the side of your black car. here's an example: We could cut them for $65 shipped.

    that angle reminds me of the old batman series when they would tilt the cameras during scenes in the villians layers

    She was in HPP. Its laying in the giant pile on mags in the bathroom. lol. Whats gay is the fact that three or four ws6s have the black and chrome going on around here and there is just 2 I have seen with black and red.
