yeah im thinking that gloss is going to look funny. I guess i can always change it if i dont like it. I was also thinking of masking off just the rolled edge of the tip so its still polished stainless and the rest be black.

When your in warp speed the soot only sticks to the bumper but yes about the last 1/2" of the tip is black... part of the reason why i want to paint them...
