That looks like the factory ones!You can still paint your by opening it which i think you have to put it on an oven.There should be instructions check on the install section.

Here's a guide I made when I did mine. I followed other methods on the net but can't find them.

take your time, give yourself a full day. Start at around 10am. Let the paint dry about 1/2 hour or so between coats. Also, I painted mine on the underside, & masked to top to get the ribbed look. The picture you've posted has the top side painted. That gives it the smooth look.

what color would i use to make them look like the jdm lights? is it just black? if i were to do it in black on the underside would you still be able to see the ribs even with the dark color?

I used Duplicolor wheel & rim paint. The color in Canad is Graphite. Might be different in the USA. If you go too dark you might not be able to see the ribs.
