    No prob

    I just took it out of the boxe and did not install it yet but the quality or look of it I should say is amazing smooth as a babies butt and very very well made in my eyes anyway. All will be told when it's installed and fitment I'll let you know thanks for the response... I was almost thinking leaving it kinda chrome or polished look so the big nastrill show but I am so not sure Hummmm

    could look good with a polisted/gunmetal. just no red/blue/anything crazy

    IMO

    i need to get my rear driver side cornerpanel, front/back bumper, and a place on my hood repainted again.

    I agree with Basham on the gunmetal mesh. Would look good on black.

    Agreement

    I am going that route a non shiny polished style and my bodyshop guy said it would be easy enough to paint after if I don't like it

    About 2 weeks

    My body shop guy can only get it done in the next 2 weeks but I think it will look cool I decided to go with the looks 1st so I did 2007 Z06 replica wheels 18" back 17" front with 10.5 wide rims 295/35/18 tires , crossed drilled and slotted rotors the WS9 hood slp lid and I alreadt had a Flowmaster axle back exhaust so I installd it with MSD wires and Platinum plugs I'll have pics in a couple of weeks

    Thanks for the help
