GM Ground Effects Kit, Before and After.

I just picked up my SS from the Chevy Dealer. Here are some photos of the car with the non painted ground effects. I thought Victory Red went well with the Argent Gray. What do you guys think?

The contrast it provides is nice, well done, I would de chrome it and turn those parts flat black, but that's just me

Noice. I wonder if anyone has considered mixing a Flat Argent metallic paint for some striping applications. I swear that color looks better than CGM in a flat-ish form.

Nice ride - congrats.
I'd paint them body color for sure

I like the contrast.

I think the gfx would look good the same color as the strips(black), or the strips the same color as the gfx (argent).

You probably had to read that twice

Looks good! I agree matching the stripes to the GFX would look even better!
And dechroming...

I think you're better off NOT painting the GFX...mine are 10 months old and paint is wearing off...

That's why I was worried about painting them. I figured I could always go back and paint them Red or Black. I don't think I want to try pulling those stripes and investing in the re-striping. I'd rather get a CAI and maybe exhaust.

Sounds like the prep and or paint work was lacking.
