The stock ones that come black?? Im putting on a JE designs front lip, and wondering what to do with this area. I guess its either 1 of the following:
1) Match paint the lower vents
2) Get Air ducts/fogs
3) keep em black, and get the bonrath/mattig up top grill to match
What do you all think????

The center grill is an insert sold by LandspeedUSA. The sides look like he has some kinda mesh behind them..

I still have mine in, what I did is cut out out the dummies on the drivers side, to allow more air flow. I painted them flat black then a clear coat. They look very nice. I have no plans on changing my bumper at this time, so I do not like the look with the side vents out. I did however remove the center vent, it looks a lot better.

Roger Moore painted his center vents silver, and then added the Hella DE vents (also painted silver) to match the body color. Do a search and I'm sure you'll turn up some pics of his car.

i took mine to the body shop and had them painted silver to match... looks tons better if you ask me. a lot better than just having the black grills and everything else silver. i'll look for a pic, but i don't think i have one. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
