They look like they are the same dark brown color as on the rest of the car. Are they brown? Do they come brown from like Eckler's or whoever? I also need the crossfire side badges if you know of a good place to get them that won't take forever to get. I need them in about 2 weeks so that they're here when the cars done being painted. If that ever happens! lol

OK Dar, I answered the other thread about this. The gills are black, yours might look brown because of being faded. Sorry to say that the "crossfire injection" badges are discontinued. I got a set off of Ebay that were NOS. I'm afraid that this may be your best bet |frown|

The grills are black. But the hex screws are that bronze/brown color. Not black.
Just to let you know. |cheers|

I have finally found out the truth. It took 2 weeks, emails, and posts on 3 different places. The gills and the front grilles are black. They do not need to be painted. You can put them right on out of the box. The gills are $51 and change from GM and only take a few days to get.
