Body colour or black?

Right, I'm gonna get my splitter sprayed soon and I'm thinking of having it black to match the bonnet, boot etc. But recently I've been thinking maybe I should have it silver. So what do you guys think?

Here's a pic:




If I choose black I might do something with the skirts and rear lip...

I'd keep it black since you got that black painted hood.

Really? Fill in the GReddy? But then it'll just be any old lip. I don't think I could bring myself to do that! Lol

Nah mate, it'll still be a Gracer lip, but I agree, they look a lot cleaner without the letters showing.
