Also, It looks like the chrome ring and plastic fins are seperate parts so I could spray the fins black. I have dark graphite so I dont know how it would look totaly blacked out.
Another option is vinyl - Anyone know where I can find black vinyl for the fins?
Thanks for the help!
Here's mine..same color car as yours. Before, after, and close up. Basically Its a 20 min job if yours come out easily and you've planned a bit. I read all the posts prior to doing it so I was sure I understood what is going on and what was attached and needed to be reattached. GL
