I hadn't really though about silver, I think that might look good.

I know the Duplicolor Spray Chrome or Bumper Chrome comes the closest to looking like real chrome of anything else I've ever used. I used to have some pics of when I did the wheels on The Missus'* van with that stuff. Looked really good, for about 6 to 8 months. Lost that chrome look after that (go figure, huh?) but still a nice silver color

Well, if you go red, then you'll have to do a White "R" on it...

Make sure the corresponding letter is on your trunk lid, too... right under the Double Decker Wing.

Whoa! Gotta make sure you paint the PVC pipe silver that you use to mount it to the deck lid.

Actually, someone did that already. And, we have a guy in MudNuts that'* gonna "rice" out his saturn 4 door as a joke.
