    Getting ready to do mine. Did any of you do any cleaning, prep, or whatever before painting?

    Same here. I did this on my 2011 SRX right after the OP posted this back in the day. I traded it in two weeks ago for a 2014. In those four years, I never had to do any touch-ups. This was the first mod that I performed on my new SRX.

    Did mine with high temp spray can, just used a piece of cardboard to protect from overspray. I did the can only, not the arms. No one has mentioned the ugly black strip or streak that runs up the exhaust can from the water coming out of the drain hole on the bottom front of it. This makes the silver even more unattractive with burnt water creating a mess of black on the can. My wife found this thread and had me do this immediately. Thanks

    I did mine yesterday! Washed muffler and rear arms with household cleaner/water, rinse, & dry. Rolled on Tremclad flat black high heat enamel paint. Looks 1000X better!

    I finally got around to doing this. The high heat flat black spray paint goes on really easily and dries to a nice even flat coating....looks factory to me. The silver showing underneath really was a distraction.
