Not really what color but what shade I guess. I have a 2005 infra red ZX3 and I am thinking of painting the chrome trim around the grill black. I don't know what shade of black would look the best and I was looking for some suggestions from people. Especially from people who have done it. But any input on the matter is appreciated.

I don't know why this is here I meant to put this in the exterior mods and lighthing section. I guess when a moderater sees, it will be moved.

if you plan on getting a carbon fiber hood, go black.

well i would say flat blat if your set on black, but if you color match it then duplicolor makes a spray can to match your paint code..its dsfm306 cardinal red....that is if you want the trim to match. post some pics when you are finished[thumb]

i ordered the color matched from steve, it was black though, i didnt wanna fuss with painting and having it chip. id say go with a gloss black of some kind... or color matched looks awesome!

Though I would rather not color match if I were color matched and painted the chrome red should I leave the middle black?

If anyone who has painted their grill black could post a picture of their finished project and say what paint they used that would be excellent.

Thanks for the input guys.

I would consider painting the chrome red, but I still doubt whether painting it would look good with the middle still being black.

I would love to see what yours looks like zx360.

It does not look half bad jhess. I think that is what I am going to go for. You just used a gloss black?
