How Do I Color In The Rear "CELICA" ?

I've seen a lot of Celica's around here & others that are modded, and on the rear trunk where the car is labeled as "CELICA", I've noticed a lot of them are colored in.

Example:

How does one go about getting that colored in?
How about if I wanted to do it with Carbon Fiber, as I've seen many done?

Do you really paint it? If so, how do you do it without f*cking up or smudging? Or are there stickers you buy? How do you cut it just so it's perfect?

i would just paint it... and maybe tape the outside edges as best i can before i do it so i'm less likely to get paint outside the letters...

i think the one in the picture is painted... because if you look at the c and the a there are lines (edges) that aren't straight... notice the dot by the a

just get a little piece of vinyl, just big enough to cover the whole word, put it on, get rid of the bubbles and use an exacto knife to go around the edges, you will be surprised how easy it can be.

Won't you scratch the paint if you're not too careful with an exact-o knife?

I'm guessing vinyl would look the best, if it's done right.
...painting, if you mess up, would probably mess up your paint job.
...pre-cut letters would be best, but what's that exact site, celicafourotwo?
