    I read an article in Watercraft Performance Magazine where they interviewed convicted rapist's, guy's who parted their hair in the middle and random people at the gym who were wearing those five toed shoes. Consecutively, they all preferred the color RED for pwc ride plates.

    Hello Mat Z, if you really want to color your intake grate & ride plate there is one company that can do it for you and IT WILL STAY ON. Silver/grey & Blue are the only two colors they offer but it is not paint by any means it is the Highest anti-friction metal coating in the world. A polly based infused coating. I had it done on my pump shoe & ride plate still look super after whole season of racing. The company is called "Polydyn", you can find them by going to www.wfoperformance.org
    when you get to the wfo site look at top of banner and go to "links" then arrow down to Polydyn
    my pump shoe & ride plate were about $100 and sent back with in a week. Good Luck
