If it were me, I would powdercoat them, but it is going to cost you. As I understand it, they typically charge by the paint job, not the size of the part.

If you paint them, make sure to get a good primer down first, and maybe put a clear coat over them after to help protect the finish. You might want to scuff them up a bit to make sure that the primer adheres well also.

Any tricks to getting the old ones out and the new ones back in?

I remember trying to tighten mine and it is a serious pain to reach the nuts on the back

Yeah, it is a pain to get to the nut on the back. I used a long handled ratchet with a 7/16' deep socket or a long handled boxed end wrench to get to it.

If it helps anyone, mine took a Torx T27 bit for the front side. I have not finished my install just yet - it may be a two person job to get to the middle bolt. I will probably remove the driver seat, have one person reaching behind the panel holding the socket on the back and one person tightening the front.

Your's has nuts on the back? Mine is just screwed straight to the fiberglass (another issue I was going to correct when I installed these grommets).

Cam - mine has 1/4" x 1.5" Torx head bolts with 1" backing washers and Nylok nuts behind the fiberglass. I may go to a shorter bolt as the 1.5" is really way too long, I could probably get by with 1/4" x 3/4" bolts, but just have not had time to go find them in stainless steel.

Picture attached.

I'll send you a set, if you want. It looks like we will need to give them a little polish, but that's easy enough.
