I can see the forum is just as torn as I am...good to know!


Anyone have a good pic of black supports on a car? I can compare to preacher's gold JDM scoop. (Only gold fxt with a jdm scoop that i know of)

I think the painted vertical supports could look really good on the less obvious colours like silver and gold.

Mine are black, but mine is also WR Blue with a lot of black accents elsewhere on the car.

I'm also for painting the vertical supports on the taller STi scoop. The black (unpainted) on the stock height scoop looks okay, but on the taller scoop, they can look out of place. Here's a link to my stock & STi scoop. :wink:

Thanks Bobby, I actually have your scoop pics up in a tab right now...I like it but I also like blue more than gold.

Perhaps "black" would be a better choice! :icon_eek:

Seriously, if you're not sure what you want, have it all painted & if you decide you prefer black supports, it would be very easy to paint those black yourself (rattlecan), since they're so small. :wink:

I can see the appeal of painting them but I left mine black as when viewed from the front I think it looks a little more aggressive. Painting them draws attention to them.

Great piece of advise right there....I'm pretty killer with a rattle can.


If anyone finds a black support (on car) pic, please post it up. I'm searching like crazy.
