Plasti-dip is a cheap way to test out what you want to do. It takes a couple of hours to get it done (most of the time is spent taping everything off and waiting for it to dry), but it's easy.

I would use flat black on the front piece area. I have the blackout panel vinyl on mine and works well. Im not a fan of plastidip so wouldnt even touch that stuff. Plastidip looks to fake in my opinion.

I think a front splitter is the most effective piece at giving the v6s an aggressive look.
