Great point...so lets hijac this a bit...what looks better:

The pan itself painted color of the car or black?
The mesh grate painted color of car or left black ?

Or some combo of the choices?

I think I like the black vent, black grate and pan painted to match hood.....

I run mine with the vent color of the car. Grade black and splash tray black. I wanted it to be a clean look on and underneath the hood. Clean meaning no different coloring accents if that makes sense. Most of my other black accents around other parts of car.



Total different front end and wheels now but this is vents and hood still today...LOL looking at bottom picture and wondering why it took me so long to change out those OEM wheels and move over to the ZL1 front end WOW

I wonder what it would look like with the frame chrome with black grate and pan, sort of like the 69 cheese grater hood trim.

You're exactly right. The post wasn't mainly for you, it was for anyone who was on the fence about running with them off. I only posted to give people an update, because I know you personally kept posting over and over about how you were worried about stuff getting inside your engine bay and wanted a custom solution for your problem. We all do have different needs, and I'm posting for the guys needs who are similar to mine ; function and form, not just form.

In fact incorporating LEDs to my trays this week so will never be removed.

I have seen many custom painted trays which look killer at shows in place. Most people are not looking at trays being off or on at shows anyhow.
