*spraymax 2k paint with hardener or regular enamel paint then follow up with 2k gloss or matter with the hardener either way I think it's best to use a paint w a hardener.

You could even prep the parts and take then to a paint shop and have them spray them with left overs from a job with even better hardened paint.

The lights remove easily from the frames with a solder iron. Just pull while you heat.
That is a little more involved than I hoped. Lol

My preference was to do the door ‘blades’
I originally thought wrapping it in red alcantara would look and feel great but maybe I first try painting it red. Then, if it doesn’t look good, I can wrap?!

Btw, I have a 1ss so no spectrum lights for me :(

Non lighting is 200 painted by GM..

Spectrum lighting colored is 650 in red or blk.

After supplies you would be paying 100 more I'd get the prepainted ones.

Great point. When I make the move, I’ll either wrap in red alcantara or just buy painted ones. Thanks bud.
