    Opinions please on bump strips... Colour?

    I'm looking into doing something with my bump strips, mainly due to time and effort
    removing polish/wax from them each weekend!

    Just to point out, i'm not keen on colour coding them Star Silver 2, but something to
    break up the silver. Black is also out of the quistion, way too dark.

    At the moment, I'm keen on the gun metal grey that comes on the mini cooper S
    or Civic TypeR, something along the lines of that.

    Please note, Irmscher chrome mirror covers to be fitted.

    At the same time I'm going to get my full centre console done and the speedo. So
    trying to match the same colour would be ideal. Also tempted to do the Irmscher
    grill, thinking process atm!

    Any thoughts considered.

    car looks really good there darren! def agree that you shouldn't spray them silver as it looks good with something to break up the colour. I would def consider spraying them black, or very dark grey - that way it should match up with the front lights etc.
    much easier to clean when they are painted though!
