    I used Sem spray paint. There is also some Krylon stuff for pastic. It's holding up ok, it's a temp solution until i order the black bar.

    Marty,

    You can buy a black grab handle. The 2003 RXDI had a black one and it is the same handle that is on the RXP. Alot of people have done this already. I think its approx $35-40.

    I've done some dash painting and car interior jobs with vinyl paint - they look good, but I'm more concerned about whether you actually use this bar or not. If you are lifting yourself up from in the water and twisting on the bar as you raise yourself up, then I can't see this paint lasting very long. Just my .02 cents.
