    Buy Mothers "Back to Black" and keep them black. Mine were all chalky when I bought my car and that Mothers stuff is the shite! They look brand new :thumb:

    And i bet its fun trying to get all the road grime and dust off of them.... Painted is where its at... even if you take the texture off of them and just paint them back black...

    im not sure what I'm going to do i going to see how good the black to black stuff works and then if I'm still not satisfied I'm going to paint them body color.
     
  13. I think I'm gonna paint mine gloss black... so that they'll match the bullitts I buy...
