faded speaker covers on inner fairing

My '10 rgc is denim black. The 'soft' covers over the speakers have faded to a light gray color.

Is it advisable to tape things off and spray paint them black? Is there a better way?

Thanks.

I would just try a sharpie if I was gunna try and use them. But why not just get a set of hog wired steel speaker grills? $40 shipped on ebay, not to shabby! But ya sharpie should do the trick

I wouldn't spray the grills with the speakers behind them.

Or, there are many here that might have their old covers laying @, course you'd have to take the outer faring off, which all have faith you can do

There is fabric paint and it can be used to recondition the faded cloth on the soeaker grills. Since the speaker grills are easy to remove I would remove the speaker grills before painting.

I have used shoe polish on the last two glides i have owned works great,not the paste type,the liquid type with the sponge applicator.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.
