I was wondering if anyone out there has done this yet....I have a 2005 C6 Coupe LeMans Blue Met. and I was thinking of getting that Nasty looking Black Bump on my roof (called an XM antenna) painted to match my vehicle and at the same time go ahead and get the Black Valance in the back (which is also Black) painted to match.
My concern is the paint sticking to the plastic or whatever material there made of and as far as the Valance is concerned chipping.....
Just curious.....
thanks

Here is a pic of my brake light surround ...the black looked terrible, color coding looks far better!! just had it done at a local paintshop (who does great work) the paint has been on 6 months without any defects.

I to have already reaplaced my third brake light and my door handles with color matching units, I didn't have them painted I purchased them from a 3rd party already to match my paint....my concern was taking off the back valance and having a shop paint it (the XM antenna also) and just wanted to know if anyone had done this yet.....? My main concern was chipping and peeling...?
thanks
