what is your opinion on painting the front lip? and if you have pics of the difference

I like the lip unpainted on the euro package colors but i my car is silver and it just looks like there is no lip there when on blacktop like they forgot the front to match the sides and back

thanks

I've seen one on a silver SVT with it painted, I honestly thought it looked kinda cheap. But thats because it's hard to paint it since it's plastic. I would just leave it like it is, black.

the biggest problem i would see is it would get scraped pretty easy (as it does now for me) and would look even cheaper with chips/scrapes out of the paint job.

I have an SVT front bumper on my SE and I had my lip painted by a Ford dealership. It looked great until 3 months later. Now the paint in flaking off. They said they will paint it again for free and that this sometimes happens on these lip pieces. I might just strip the rest off and leave it black. Basically, I just wanted to let you know that this could happen to you like it did to me.

Mines already scraped pretty good, but a little Meguiars Rubber Bumper Treatment cleans it right up.
I can't imagine how bad it would look if it were painted though. [:(]
