First, don't paint the black strip, i.e. the decal strip. That would look terrible. Whether you should remove the black tape or not is another question. I like the tape on a plain white car, especially with the Evo3 splitter underneath. With the race look, you might not want the tape. Go to Mark Pike's site: http://www.e30m3therealm3.com/ and look at all the race cars in the gallery. I'm sure you'll see both examples. Pick what you like.

my car will be painted pretty much like these two on a pic. My question is -do you think that I should paint the black strip inside the bumpers white? Or leave it black like on these cars?
Thanks
