mine are gloss black from a rattle can of krylon....matches perfectly. looks much better than the stock chrome or even dark chrome. makes the car look more aggressive and less ricey.

I hear you. I found a guy who is local and all he did was open them up for me. I then took the shells to my body shop where they were painted and then I sent them to Nick (Inspar8r) at MMSport and he retrofitted them to LEDs. The trunk lights are dual LEDs which were done by ClearCorners.Com [ top projects ]

Thanx for the pics and the words of advice guys, chris ur car looks exacly like mine does at the moment, so if u can get some time to take some daytime shots on a nice day that would be sweet, otherwise, we'll see if i get the nerve to take the time to do this once my car goes in the shop for the new rear end
