Default Should I paint the lip kit I have for my car? 1997 honda accord?

I have a mugen lip kit for my 97 accord. It came with the front and rear bumper lip. My question to you guys is should i leave it black unpainted like it is OR should i match the paint color?Now the only reason i would think it looks cool is because i have an lx model and the side molding isnt painted right now.. and the stock lip kit is also black unpainted... Here is an ebay link for what lip kit im talking about.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-97...AccessoriesLet me know what yall think... Its really an easy 10 points for the best opinion!Ps: my car is maroon right now so it looks pretty slick, and i think maroon and black go really well with each other... just need your opinion. thanksThis is directed twords the answer jag gave... Buddy i have more money invested in this car than you do yours... lol you prob drive a 1993 ford pos car.... you will never understand the import scene. my engine is fully tuned. i have everything i want to do to that car done, except for the exterior...... but nice try on your answer... so to counter your answer my accord is FAST so again good tryThis is directed twords the answer jag gave...

You have the base model version of a 4-banger, front wheel drive grocery getter. It's an economy car designed to get places as reliably, and slowly, as humanly possible.In my humble opinion, you shouldn't throw money away taking functionless plastic to your car. It'll just end up looking like another trashed, tacky "ryde".Instead, I'd recommend taking care of it, saving your money, and learning basic car maintenance (oil changes, brakes, plugs, etc). Then when you have the money for an actual performance car, you'll know how to take care of it and enjoy it more.Simple, understated, and clean is good. Garish, noisy, and cheap is not.

i happen to agree with the questioner on the first answer. accords are seen as grocery getter point a to point b cars. and no lx is NOT base model, the dx is. also i myself own an accord and wish i had the engine that came in the questioners, since it is one of the strongest f-series engiens ever built by honda and can handle 5-8 psi of boost on stock internals without a problem, possibly more. so very politely and rather forward, jaguar, please keep your opinions on cars to yourself if you dont know much about the particular car and if all you are going to say is a stereotypical comment. if you want to know what an f22 engine (what came stock in the questioners car if its a I4) look around on the internet, i know one guy that is making 630+ hp in the same engine and the only problem he has is the transmission not being capable of handling the power.now onto my answer: really just look around at some pictures on the internet of other 5th gen accords. its a matter of preference really, if you find another maroon 5th gen accord with a painted lip and you like the way it looks then go for it, if you dont like the look then leave it black or think of another color to paint it and see if you can photoshop a picture of your car with a different color front lip. photoshop can help a lot with deciding what to do

wow...what a coincidence. i also have a maroon accord. 95 EX Coupe. and i was actually going to do the same thing. i was just going to put a layer of clear coat on it and put it on. i think the maroon/black contrast looks nice. i was also going to go with black badges on my trunk to go with the smoked taillights. also with a carbon fiber hood and black housing for headlights.

Default Brass air fittings

Now that is a lot of brass air fittings Wholesale Tools With Free Shipping World Wide From China Distributor there is just about every type
of air fitting that you could want. Wholesale prices too. I guess these could be used as small water pipe fitting also. I
used some of the parts to make my babington wvo burner.
