The only thing I can get local is that nasty green e track. Has anyone painted thiers before installation and if so what did you use? I wondering on kind of paint, durability, and if you sanded/sand blasted prior to painting.

Thanks

No matter what color you paint them, your going to get chipping with use. If you really don't like the color, than get them powdercoated..

Well you guys are help so I think I will go do some RC meditation :D
Polish them out. I would start with 200 grit, then go to 220, 400, 600, 1200 before breaking out the Nevr Dull and Mothers Mag polish . . .

But chroming them will make them stronger...
