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

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 also used the leather dye approach applied with a fuzzy dauber. Works perfect and no disassembly needed. The sharpie may leave a purplish tint when dry. Jmho

speaker covers

if you mask around the speakers you could spray them.i spray speaker systems all the time,but i like the sharpie idea.
