I went to lunch with Adman from the Corvette Forum today. He installed the rear brake ducts that he painted white on his coupe about 4000 miles ago. I looked at them up close and even though they take a beating, the paint was not scratched at all. He did explain that he used the proper procedure for painting plastic, including the flexible primer and paint.

We mentioned this to the painter at the body shop that is doing my Spectre Werkes rear fascia installation and he agreed that the paint, if done properly is very durable. He then suggested that that I should have my brake ducts painted silver to match the wheels and the silver stripes that I'm going to have installed.

I really can't pciture this. What do you guys think?

I think this should look really good, but it is kind of hard to picture. If you do it and don't like it i guess you can always change it back.
If you do the painting be sure to post pics.

Frank, you're onto me. I thought I'd ask anyway as the forum needs more traffic plus I need to up my post count so I can become a Z06 Addict.


Actually, what I'll probably do is buy an extra set, have them painted and see if I like them. They are easy enough to switch out.

I thought I was going to paint mine to match the body but I like the contrast with the silver body, black tire, silver wheel, black duct, silver screen. I even added a little more screen. Also painted the 0 white and the 6 blue.
