if you sand it down so the paint has something to adhere to. How much did your brace cost? You saw mine in my thread right? That was almost impossible to install because of the airbox

You don't want deep grooves that you'll just end up fixing later, you just want to scuff up the surface enough for paint to adhere to it.
