Default Question on GT 500 rear bumper cover paint ...

To save $$$ I bought a GT/CS rear bumper cover instead of a GT500 cover for the conversion. The bumper came pre-masked for the blacked out area of the cover and the rest is all black ready to prep and paint. The Lower area of the bumper is textured as it should be for the GT500. The painter is going to mask off this area for the desired GT 500 ground effects. I already have my original V6 rocker panels they will be going back on. Is the GT500 lower area painted black? Or is the more or less left natural like the V6 Rockers? Or should the entire area be coated with flat black paint thin enough to not cover the texture?

Thanks ... Dan

Thanks ... I'll let the painter know ....

Not sure of the cost ... I had the body shop order it from the dealer with the rest of sheet metal for the repairs ... He ordered the upgrade kit part # not the replacement part # ... I think MSRP is $299 ...

i also bought the CSbumper to save vs. the GT. yes, the air diffuser is already black but to get a uniform color,
have them paint the entire lower half a flat black. this will match your rocker panels perfect, as i've also removed my GT painted ones for the v6/ GT500 rocker panels.( that area not painted black on the CS is more of a grayish, to match have it painted.)
