New Z Plates!

Hey guys i met up with my CNC guy today and im finally getting new Z plates out.. .but... i have changed the design on them...i think they look better this way and will function way better than the older ones... but i have a question for you guys...

they are made from billet Aluminum... would you guys prefer i leave them just like that or have then anodized black like the last ones? reason i ask is because anodizing them black will cost more... about 2 bucks more each..

this is what they looked like before: http://www.stealth-automotive.com/im...c1d32d261e.gif

for people that dont know what its for its for the zoodad mod...

no pics of the new ones until they are done... wont be for another week and a half

let me know what you guys think about the anodizing or not

Update: here is a pic of the new design... they will be in stock in a few days ready to ship... price will be $39.95

I say black so they won't stand out as much, makes it look more factory and better, imo.

Thats what im thinking too.. but current price for them was $29.95... they are now costing me 3 bucks more to make which doesnt include the anodizing.. so with that were looking at about 5 bucks more so price is going to go up to about $34.95

i guess i could.. but... they charge a lot fee... and since im only having 60 of them made for now it doesnt matter if i do 10 or all 60.. they are still going to charge me the same amount since they have a Minimum amount that has to be paid...
