Today I went to meet with BozzTL-S and by his A C U R A letters> he is very nice and stuff. After I drove home. I say what the heck let me stop at home depot and by a black spray pant. I got the pant for 6 dollars. Go home and do it. It only took me 5 minutes to paint it. Now the pipe you can't see the rusted and white anymore in a far distance. :) Cheap easy mod to do.

Holy crap calvin, forget the 6 bucks for spray paint, invest some of your money in HOOKED ON PHONICS books.

hey calvin,
i've been thinking about doing that as well. did you have to wash and/or prime it first before you painted it? if not, do you think it will peel off? i was thinking about doing it in silver. what do the rest of you guys think would look better? my car is laguna green (grey :D ) and i have silver wheels.
thanks,
peter.

Real easy to do, I used one of those wire brushes to get any salt/crap build up rubbed off, cleaned off/let dry and sprayed on.

edit: Just make sure you mask off really well, you don't want any overspray getting on ur wheels ;)

No, ick. Unless you want to take off you exhaust to make sure you actually get the paint right and then cover it in a million coats so it doesnt chip from rocks. The whole reason everyone goes black it so it's invisible and it's never noticed.
