Those ducts give the SS a defineing look imo, so I would leave them oem grey or even better get Shopman1 chrome duct inserts to match your rims :chevrolet:



Where can you get the Shopman1 chrome ducts?

Black ducts on a red SS still stand out, it looks fantastic on red trucks, get your bowtie black as well. And IMO, if you want to go the distance, black SS emblems. It will really make the truck stand out.

Leave them grey. They are what make the front of a SS. Just like the black around the headlights on a 3rd gen Camaro. Never understand why people pain them a different color.

Plastic dip them black. I think oem gives trucks more value when you want to sell or as time goes.
