Default Bumper vents painted - pics here!

I went and bought some black enamel detailing spray paint from Pep Boys, sanded my orange bumper vents and applied a couple coats on. Chances are I'll have to reapply paint later but for now it looks pretty good and still retains the 'open vent' look while protecting the wiring from rain and the elements:

Thumbs up

Looks good! My brother has a 99' Impreza Coupe and he pretty much has the same clear lights and bumper vents painted too. Makes me wish I got a 4-door Silverthorne Impreza.

Looks like you need to repaint your grill.

I did the same but cut up the middle parts off the grills and glued on a wire screen on the opening to let more air in for the intake. It works out really well and the paint stays on very nicely.
