I scuffed them up with a high grit sandpaper, then I painted them with wheel paint by duplicolor I think they have it everywhere. I did a real crappy job on them beacuse it started getting dark and I thought they were gonna chip real easy put they have held up for a week of abuse so next weekend I go over them a little better

I agree with the clear corners. Makes it look a lot cleaner IMO

I like it a lot better than my stock corners and I've got the all black thing going
