Ok so I just bought a 2000 ZTS, black. They guy before me painted the two front grills and the cupholders a dark red, it looks alright, but I dont know, should it be painted back? Or what should I do with it, I have been thinking of putting gold underbodys on, and if I do that, the red would not work at all.

Useless without pics....

But if you want the gold accented parts. Then get the grilles painted to match, or visversa. Red is a good accent to black, then again... gold would probly look very good as well. But all three would not work.

If it looks as bad as I'm picturing it in my head then please paint them back to black.

Anything over 500K is a nono.

Open the image in paint.
Key combo "ctrl+w" gives you the option to resize the image using the %.
Then save it, it should already be .JPG/.JPEG if not.... change it. Also just by saving it through paint, the image will drop in size by at least 250K if you are using anything more than a 3.1MP camera.

Hope that helps.
