Finally painted my Fender Vents

I finally got some time today and decided to paint my fender vents. I ended up being a little rushed as it started out today at 60* here in Denver and by 4:30 it was snowing. I painted the chrome to match the dark shadow gray on the bumpers and trim. Then the F-250 vermilion red to match the truck. The vents were done in flat black. I didnt get a chance to put them back on the truck because of the snow so hopefully tomorrow afternoon the weather will be clear and i can get a few pics of them on the truck.

Finally painted my Fender Vents

Painted mine white. Popped off easy with my hands, just reach around the inside and squeeze the clips with your fingers and pull off with ease and care. I acetoned the hell out of mine, blew off with the air tool and painted a few coats. Worked out nicely. Idk why the fvck ford made them red/violet/ faded pink, wack!

Nice color match... for all the above. F250Marine, looks like the grey is a perfect match, Ford should have done the two tones that way!

It was i used duplicolor spray paint. i wish they would have, would have been way easier. I'm waiting for a bottle of touch up paint, so i can hand paint the super duty and powerstroke lettering red also.

Thanks! Definitely an easy must do project. I think I might paint my mirror caps this weekend dark gray to match, but not sure I kinda like that the all black mirrors. What do you guys think?
