  1. If you're just gonna spray-bomb paint it, I would suggest using wheel spray paint because it is durable and can take elevated temperatures without chalking. Plasti-kote makes wheel paint in silver, charcoal, steel, gold, and semi-gloss black.

    Curious, how much does it weigh compared to the factory brace?
  2. I am using left over silver and clear 500 degree ceramic paints from my intake, so they should definitely hold up pretty good.

    The car didn't come with a factory STB (no cobras did), so I don't have anything to compare it to. If someone wants to post up the weight of a stock GT STB, I can weigh mine and compare I guess.
  3. That looks really good! I voted silver, I love that color :drool:.

    Now, how about making one to clear my 418? :nice:
  4. yea...I'll get right on that... :D
