    Also looking at this one myself. Are they OK to use as they are without the need to paint or gloss ie not just "primed"?

    Thanks.

    They are probably ok to go on as they come mate just not sure if the plastic is as black as the paint would be so gonna compare when I get time and deside , they are just bare grp no primer on them so upto you really

    How easy would these be to remove all the grill inserts and replace with honeycomb mesh like rs3 style?
