1.Gloss Black? 2 / 9%

3.Polished? 7 / 32%
4.Brilliant Alunimium? 5 / 23%

Hey guys,

These are my IC pipes, made of stainless:
http://iamfrank.ath.cx/22122004/images/100_2797.jp g

I have a question. The cast 1G IC pipes have been painted "brilliant aluminium". I was wondering what colour/finish should I have the stainless piping in?

Should I paint it black to tone it down a little? If so, matt or gloss?

Should I polish it up? It is bling stainless afterall.

Should I paint it the same bright ass silver as the cast ones?

Cheers,
Nathan

If you arent planning on getting the car engineered then you may want to consider matt or semi gloss black to draw attention away from them Smile

Keep the theme the same.

Painting them black would highlight them as well.

So you reckon just painting them the brilliant aluminium? I'm trying to think, it would be very bright! Smile
