Eric508 iMO don't paint it. Looks cooler when it stands out as a different color than the body.

mahomeless I wouldn't paint it. That thing is too flexible and too low to the ground. I went through the same thing as you and decided against it.

RunninOn6 Ok, y'all talked some good sense into me. More reps when I'm on a comp. later!

Maybe I could have them paint it satin black?

phayze I wouldn't paint it unless you're 100% sure you won't be scraping it on anything. Those things flex and get scuffed quite easily.

faym 08 Black chin is a lot easier to touch up. A little rough sand and some flat black paint and they look great again. Color not so much.

maxgst the only problem I see with the paint, is that chin spoilers are always hitting stuff (cause they are so low) so the paint would get scratched pretty fast

T_rail94 I really like the way these came out:

But this looks like absolute sex

RunninOn6 Yeah, I'm thinking I'll probably go black, but the painted to match isn't half bad. I just thought it might be original or different.

03torchGT I think it'd look good with the grille delete matching but I'd personally leave the chin black I don't think it'd look bad but I think the black looks better just my opinion.

RunninOn6 Thanks, Shelbydog!
Can't rep you, though because I have to spread the love

I'll try again later

Shelbydog! I drag my chin spoiler everytime I leave my driveway. I've thought about painting it body color but with how flexible the plastic is, I figured it would eventually crack and flake off. I do have some scrapes on mine. I was going to hit the high spots with some sandpaper and then shoot some semi flat black rattle can over the lip - maybe even dip it for a little bit of texture.

I cracked my cowl panel a while back. After repairing it with some epoxy and sanding, I hit it with some plasti dip. It looks like new.

RunninOn6 Hmm.. I like it, but I can't decide! Reps will be given out soon.
September 1st, 2013 05:24 PM

Looks pretty good I'd say. I like unpainted better though.

Would probably look better with paint matched grille delete.
September 1st, 2013 03:51 PM
barnz01gt I've seen paint matched grill deletes they look really good
September 1st, 2013 09:37 AM
GT o1 Op I was going to silver a
plasti dip the chin spoiler as well. I can't tell if paint match would be too much. The plasti dip comes out flat so I think it would be a nice contrast

Cabikejumper Grille delete area paint to match may look pretty good. I personally don't like paint to match Mach lips.

Painting Mach 1 Chin Spoiler To Match? (Other Q's & Reps Inside)

I sold my 99/01 Cobra bumper and got an OEM Mach 1 front bumper.
The bumper is going to be painted Silver to match my car (obviously). The chin spoiler is a little rough from some bumps. I don't really want to leave it how it is, and I don't think they'd up-charge me to paint it the same color as the rest of the bumper. I think the grill delete is definitely going to be silver as well. Thoughts? Bad idea? Open to suggestions.

Also- so I do not have to make another thread for this; would there be a way to "fix" blemishes in the chin spoiler? It's OEM, so I'm not sure what it's made of, but it's heavier duty than the aftermarket ones. It is almost stretched out and faded in a spot about an inch wide where the PO hit something.

Thanks in advance, guys. Reps for those who are helpful.
