Painting my air box

So what do you guys think...do the stripes in black and leave the ram orange or do both black?

Lol yeah taping is going to suck but the end result will be worth it. The ram head is a coin toss tho... I'd say it would look good if you leave it the way it is or if you would paint it black it would look good as well... If it was me I'd paint it black.

I'd do the stripes and ram head black. Just for some contrast.

Really looks good! I would go with the black stripes and rams head. What kind of paint did you use? Can't wait to see it all finished and installed... We're going to need lots of pictures.

I just some Rustoleum stuff. Same stuff I used on my badges. I'll get the actual product line tomorrow. I'm gonna redo this though with a different color primer. And adhesion promoter if I can find it. May take me a while to get the paint off, though, especially around the bottom edges.
