I'd either just black them out, or custom paint the insides some odd color.

I was going to look for some vinyl....always liked the red, thought it looked good against the victory red paint.

Did you take a harsh bristled brush to it or something? What are those marks on your bumper below and left of the ss symbol?

It's not paint, it's a decal. Take them off front and back.

As Darks1d3 said, it isn't paint, just a vinyl decal. Order an overlay for it in any color you want from any of the vendors on this site.

I did not like the red on the SS. So I ordered vinyl decals from a vender on eBay. Fit like a glove and looks like I think an SS symbol should look, white. Tricky to apply straight, take your time.

worst case scenario, I'll just ship mine out to you. No charge, just give me your address:
This is off my stock SS grill.
