    Hella Horns before and after (opinions)

    I installed my Hella horns and I'm kinda on the fence with the red. I was considering painting the hella grilles black, but I'm not sure. What do you guys think looks better?

    Looks good to me. Lot of people get them for aesthetics as well as function.

    Black or Silver. No other colors exist, except maybe blue.

    Mine are painted black (at least the visible pair), just disassemble the horn before painting, don't know if paint on the horn itself would cause issues.

    Red and yellow go together (even with a blue backdrop)


    If you are not sure just plasti dip them you can always peal them off. I have pink ones and they kind of look red in weird light conditions but its all up to you.

    I painted them black with plastidip for now. I might try for blue in the future.

    Well I can always change my mind since they are now plastidipped. I didn't think it looked right with the yellow fogs along with the car being blue.
