mine looks like this now, chrome trim painted with SEM trim paint on the top pieces, lower pieces replaced with the rubberized pieces, which match perfectly.

it came with silver ones, I got sick of cleaning them all the time.........these turn a real nice shade of grungy grey when I don't clean them. Perfect

I will prob get some CSL reps in dark grey next year and keep these O.Z.'s and slap some track tires on them.
