Do you guys think think that you should paint an Aluminum GT racing Spoiler on a Black CAR?
This is the same wing that was on the Ecplise from the Fast & the Furious.
On the car the two flaps are painted black and the rest is aluminum,OR is it painted silver as well?
Reemeber this is for a BLACK CAR.
I was thinking painting it ALL BLACK to match the car!!
Any suggestions?

Have it anodized if you can.. this seems to be the trend for some of the show winning vehicles out here in Southern California so that they don't have just an aluminum looking wing. The Eclipse was done the same way... I use to drive the coppies off the trailers and on to the set when they would get preped for stunts. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

it would look ok either way. if your rims are silver then paint the sides and leave the middle silver. if they're white. paint the wing black. or get a carbon fiber center piece.

i had the ends painted purple like my car and the middle was silver. matched my rims just fine.

i dont have the spoiler like yours but you can see a pic of my car in the other topic.

http://www.hyundaiperformance.com/forums/snitz/topic.asp?a=&t=5545

but thats what i did.

anodized is like the red and blue stuff you always see. its like steel or aluminum and the red looks kinda maroon and the blue looks kinda funny.

thats anodized. they like heat treat it with some color. i dunno how but i dont really like it.

ex...hood pins that are red and blue are anodized. (unless someone actually tried to paint them) :D

Im still confused on what color to paint it or just paint the side flaps?
The wing is a GT stye with 2 wings.Its the same like the Mitsu Ecplise in the Movie Fast& Furious.
ON a black tib you think pained all Balck would look nice,or paint it all black and paint the 2 side flaps silver.
What do you guys think?

Long!!
The reason why i didnt get the black wing is because it was the last one they had for a cheap price.PLUS im repainting my whole car Black again so its not really a loss.
When you say leave the middle silver are you refering to not painting it at all and leaveing it Aluminumed in color from the factory? Or actually paint it silver and paint the Flaps Black!

naw leave it the same color it came. the aluminum color. thats how mine is. paint the sides black and get a black graphic or name and throw it on the middle. oh, you have a two stage one right. well get two stickers. :D

your rims are silver right? if so the wing should match the rims just fine
