We did ours with Krylon textured Black paint. Love the look!! We use the textured on most everything on out Jeep to match it all up and it makes for easy touch up and repairs.

Hazards of hanging out here. I like the look. It took longer for the paint to dry then it did to do the job....

sweet job guys... if you have any trouble with paint chipping off 'em, try some high-temp engine paint. It is made with ceramic...
