    Question Leave as silver or paint?

    Bumpers going in to the body shop over the weekend, but do i leave the mesh silver or get it painted blue the same as the car or black?

    Have them sprayed blue mate.
    1: It will make the car look lower

    and 2: It will make it look even as you've obviously had to cut a hole for the zaust
    are you VXR enough?

    The mesh is just rested in there at the moment but will cut snugly around the exhaust pipe.

    In that case it probably would look better if you kept it silver, does break up the blue a bit
