    Thumbs up Any X owner paint their Chrome vent and hood piece??

    I can't stand the fake chrome vents and hood piece. I had the ski less than a week and had to paint them! I'm not really liking how the hood chrome piece looks now painted black, so I guess I might be painting the hood now also! =)

    Seems like most people here seem to like chrome, if anyone has any pics of an X ski without the chrome pieces I would love to see them!!!

    Just buy the 07 RXP black trim, and paint them as you'd like!

    Already painted mine black but just wanted to see different paint scheme. I'm not feeling the black hood trim now with the orange hood. I want to keep some things orange...

    Paint the top compartment cover silver. Ditch the orange. Silver+black =

    Thanks. Not near as trick as some of the stuff I have seen of yours.
    I ended up doing the lid gloss instead.
