Any help with Side Window Louver color choices for Grabber Blue Mustang?

I recently got a 2011 Grabber Blue Mustang with the black bottom side stripe. I recently purchased some side louvers and have been wondering what color to have them painted. I'm torn between Flat Black(no gloss) to match the side stripe, window tint and future wheels. Or grabber blue louvers to match the car. Thanks

Def. GB. To me, body accessory parts that are not painted body color look odd and out of place. So since you asked, there's my 2 cents.

Great to have you with us, Grabber blue would look best

+1 For Grabber Blue.

I know the look you are considering, and would even be interested to see it. Now I must state the obligatory, "It's your car, do what you want with it" line

But I would not do it, if it was me.

Unless you got the louvers that go inside your car, my vote would be grabber blue as well!

I know, that's why I was thinking about the flat black. The grabber blue, with everything else flat black would've looked cool I'd guess but don't wanna be the first one to try it in case it just doesn't look right. haha

It's looking like I'll have the body shop order some grabber blue paint instead. Any other opinions would be greatly appreciated seeing as I just placed the order for the Louvers today so I have some more time to think it over before they arrive at the shop.

I think in the case of this car, I would have done a different style of louver (to better match the back ones) and also do them in black. More retro...

I thought about doing these SHR quarter louvers black, but decided against. I am waiting on black deck lid cover and will add some other little black touches later.
