Do you think it would look good if I painted my crosslaces black? How would I go about doing that myself (doing it right)? How much do you think it would cost to have them done by a pro?

if you do you should keep the lip unpainted so it accents the black. I think it would look good.

i have been wanting to paint my crosslace for 2 years now....never got a chance

i think that if you do it, let the machined surfaces (outer lip, and the area near the center cap) silver
