Mr. Jones, be classy and strip the back of the emblem and paint the back gloss black.

Krylon makes paint specificly for plastic at your local home depo or whereverthefuck.

Good lord!

Was it still wet in that pic?

Thats blochier than my corner guards...
it might have been... or it's because of the camera app with the hdr filter. it turned out pretty smooth, my uncle who has done paint for the past 37 years said it looked good :thumbup:

I used krylon fusion gloss black, scraped the foil off the back and then sprayed the whole thing a few coats. then with krylon fusion clear coat. sprayed the front for some added protection. I think it looks good but I also think it would look better if I buff out the orange peel the clear coat left...one day I'll get to that.

I used Plasti Dip on the grill and bowtie to see how it would look (truck came with an OEM chrome grill). I later returned the grill to chrome, but left the bowtie black.

Been meaning to do this for years.
