Opinions please - What color should I paint my spoiler??

Here's some new pics of my GTO. I just bought a Judge spoiler that will get installed when I get it painted.

What color do you think I should paint the spoiler? Black or red that matches the car?

I can't find very many pics of red GTOs with black spoilers.

IMO......paint it the same color as the car. The only spoilers I have seen where the paint is different are on 70's&71's on white cars with black spoilers.

I agree with all the others. You should definately color match. Like Judge said, the only black spoilers came on the 70/71 Polar White Judge.

They look best color matched. Case in point:



Couldn't resist another oppurtunity for gratuitous self gloss!
