It was next to the regular auto spray paint at the local parts store.  It was called bumper and molding paint.  Let me know how the Chevy yellow work/looks.  (hint-need pics)

Has anyone seen anything for those of us with the retractable steps?

I have been searching the net, but none that I have found work with my steps.

I just bought some DURAFLAPS for my '07 LTZ Avalanche , I also just added
fenderwell flares. . . . I'll post a couple of pics after I get the mudflaps
on. Had some of these on my previous '03 Chevy 2500 DuraMax. . . loved the
mud flaps. . . . but they are not cheap. . . but extremely heavy duty.

The Chevy flaps are paintable, so you could paint the bowtie. ?? Might do that myself. ?? :B:

Yep they are - sanded and painted mine - sanded the bowtie smooth - then added the red one from pepboys

For anyone with the Z71 flares......

Finally got around to installing the Husky flaps on the wife's Suburban and my Avalanche.  They fit great!
Well worth the effort.  Debating if they should be painted white or not???

Hey whisky. Where did you get the black on black mudflaps? I have been searching all over for them.

Not one of the funnest things I've ever done, but their finally done, smoothed & painted splash guards. Looks like I wound up getting the same bowtie decal that TX Darth put on his.

I have the same color truck, which paint did you use, and where did you buy it.  Does it match as perfectly as the pictures make it look?

I bought 5 cans, they're only 5 oz. cans. I did the splash guards & Bowties. I wish I could've found something at a parts store. The paint from GM was just over $12 a can.

Ok, I have the rears from GM to install (have to take the time to drill and stuff). However, I'd like to have them on the front also, but I'm running stock height in the front, with 305/45/22 rubber and they rub front and rear of the front wheel well when turning in reverse. Will the mounting bolts/screws of the flaps get hit? Anyone running similar setup? Thanks.

:help:  Trainwrek is it best to get the black grain mud flaps or just the plain black mud flaps. I didnt know if the grained ones would be harder to paint. They have both the black grain and regular black on the gm site but there about 35 dollars difference in price. My truck is victory red and I had planned on painting mine like yours and was just curious which ones you got.  Thanks   :B:

Here is what mine turned out like.  I wanted Chevy bowtie yellow but the store would not let me test the color so I just used silver to somewhat match the AV.  I used bumper paint so it would be pliable. (first photo post so be gentle)


How did you make bowtie outline in the tape? I want to paint a red bowtie on mine.

I taped over everything then used a new utility knife to cut around the bowtie to remove the tape.

Good luck!

It is already a part of the Chevrolet rear mud flaps but it is black.  Some people have sanded it off and then painted theirs.  Afterwards they bought a bowtie and glued it on.
