I think that's the reflection of the light that makes the side steps look silver. Rail as the real deal in the post DMor noted above, they are awesome. I'm going to do this one way or another, waiting to see those aftermarkets, but I really like the oval x-sec and look of Rail's rails. Hey, that's a good one...dbolin said:I can't tell from the pics, but the side steps look like they're silver/chrome with black step pads on them? I've seen several other similar pics in which the side steps look like they're silver or chrome with the "step" part of them in black. If that's the case, where did you get them? The ones I ordered out of the Acura catalog from my dealer appeared to only be available in solid black (looked like the entire things were powdercoated). In fact, the pictures of the side step installation (on page 3 of this thread) are solid black. I think I would prefer to have side steps that were silver in part to match the door handles, etc. Any insight would be appreciated!
I'm not sure what you mean about the Platinum inserts? The only things I had painted were the fender flares, and the lower trim, there is an area under the lower trim that is still grey, but it matches and is ahrdly noticable, the rear bumper I didn't do anything with.CHAZMAN said:Can't tell too well from your photos (debastian) but what did you do about the Platinum inserts in the front and rear bumpers. I thought the Acura flares were supposed to coordinate with them?
