You've only got a couple of options.

1) Paint em. Few guys have done it, After it's tucked it doesn't look to bad.

2) Powder coat them. I almost considered this option but it wouldn't match my black paint very well

3) Re-chrome. Only thing with that is you'll need to get sandblasted before redipped and any imperfections will still be there after chroming.

My bad!

Rattlecan but look for flexible paint as the rubber "breathes" so to speak. I think you can use show polish or even a dye aswell.

Good luck!
