    Default Painting an SRi Exhaust Surround??

    Dont know what you call them, the Plasitc Grille type thing that goes around the exhaust on the back bumper.

    Has anyone ever painted one to match the colour of their car??
    I keep looking at mine and thinking what it would look like, would it look too black, does it need the Grey colour to break up the black??

    What do you lot think, and if anyone has done it, regardless of colour, an you post a picture so i can see what it looks like?

    And if you have had it done, what did it cost??

    I was actually thinking of getting the insert bit's filled, and having it completely smooth.

    What do you reckon??
