    yeah that would work, if you do add the color match paint, do at least four coats, then compare to your trucks paint, and add more coats if they're needed.

    I have drill this weekend so it might be monday before i get all of them done and back on the truck. The Center caps you can sand them down fairly easy compared to the Star's they are more of a pain and time consuming. I have 2 Center caps Painted and Clear coated and already got the 3rd center cap sanded ready for paint. The duplicolor Color Match paint i tried out on a star and it doesn't bond good at all with plastic! The paint i used was Rustoleum Speciality Plastic it's a nice gloss black. The duplicolor did not bond good and was dripping off so i just used some adhesive remover and cleaned the star up. I didn't finish because the bottle was already used when i got it 1/4 of the way and ran out so gotta get another can and got plenty of clear clat left!
