I just don't understand what is so bad about painting the Letters. If i understand this correctly, his car is a GT, with a GT badge just painted Red, Right??? So what's the big deal.
Maybe that is he color scheme. I have seen quite a bit of people paint them to match the color scheme, the color of there car so you just see the silver part.
It's not like the car is misbadged or has a parkbench on the back of it.
