Is anybody considering painting the black lower rear facia body color?

I was wondering how this might look, anybody have it done yet or considering it?

there are pix here somewhere of the rear ground effect pkg painted....
Why oh Why?
Windshield=10" vertical
mirror= 3 7/8" (that's almost 4") vertical
that means that the mirror is 38.75% the size of the vertical windshield...
it sure seems like the ratio could be better... just sayin....

Yep, pics all over, and yes mine will be painted black to match. Look for the Sema BLACK, it's all done up as well.
Back Street Performance has done a great job with ALL my Performance & Suspension mods, highly recommend them (Rich@BSP) he's in my friends list.

I'll be getting mine painted gloss black (car will be Victory Red).

I kind of hate the look of unpainted plastic body panels anywhere on a car. Trim and grilles are one thing but the rear diffuser is really just part of the entire rear bumper fascia and should be painted, IMO. I don't care if it is painted in a contrasting color (like mine) or body colored but unpainted gray plastic just looks aweful to me.

I saw a red C6 Corvette on the way home from work last week and they had painted the rear diffuser black on it. Nice finishing touch instead of the stock gray plastic look.

I think the OP is talking about the fascia that comes on the car from the factory, not the GFX fascia.

It's kind of like the roof ditch molding. How much could it cost to body color match that and the lower rear air dam? I'm getting a black car and am still considering having it painted gloss black. If I wasn't getting black, it would be very high on my list of priorities, but that's just me.
