    Has anyone ever thought about painting their factories red. I painted mine black but thought that painting them red would be different then again it might just look stupid. Thinking of buying red plasti dip and give a go. If anyone thinks I shouldn't waste my time or money just let me know.

    It would take a lot of paint to paint a factory...much less multiple factories. I hope you have a big wallet.

    How many factories do you own?

    I have a buddy with an extra set. I figured I would spray one with Plasti dip and see how it looked.

    saw a silver 2nd Gen with red steelies in Frisco last month....fuckin ugly. just the worst idea ever. I wish I had a picture.

    if red is your fetish then I'd paint em black with red accents like around the rim or center caps or something.
