Zep. Simple Green is also a good one, but that stuff is a little more harsh. A lot of people say it can wreck plastic and rubber after a while. The citrus stuff is supposed to be more friendly for that stuff.

I found some spray paint that matched the interior color of my trim and painted mine. Remove the black tweeter inserts and spray away.

Any place that sells Rustoleum or Krylon should have a color that comes realllllly close to the interior color. I have tan interior so I got some that matches almost perfect. You can also get the SEM paint. If you go to the SEM website they should have a link to local retailers in your area.

If you have the tan interior then the SEM (Saddle Tan) is your color, depends on the year 92-95. 96-99 was a little different. If you have the grey interior then choose the SEM Grey that matches best. I have tan interior so I had the Saddle Tan. Others that have the grey interior may chime in and tell you the best grey choice.

Hope that helps.

Ok...time for me to step in.

In order for you to paint those, and have them come out good, you MUST separate the metal grille from the plastic. Otherwise the fabric layer that is in between the two will catch overspray, which will not only make it look bad, but will also dampen sound.

Bending the tabs on the metal is not hard to do, but it is time consuming. The end result, however, is worth it.

They turned out really good but my next question would be, after removing the metal meshing do I paint them seperatly or just paint the metal and leave the plastic?
