i removed my tunnel completely and brought it to my father in laws autobody shop where he lightly sand blasted it and went from there. you have to rough it up in order for the paint to stick. otherwise a good option would be just to have it powdercoated. thats what im doing next time around. slomo

It is more of a satin black. Have to remember with the tunnel, you have the VIN that is stamped into the tunnel. DO NOT cover the VIN. Your local law enforcement will have a field day with you as that is known as altering a VIN which will be a felony. Have to cover the vin up, then paint or powder coat. Then remove the covering over the vin. Then get something that is easy to remove like electrical type in a close color and cover up the VIN. When the law stops you and checks the VIN and starts reaching for the cuffs you can just remove the tape.
