To paint the emblem, i used a heat gun for a couple of minutes applied to the grill and was be able to peel the chrome emblem out ( Btw it's much harder than the rear badges)
Then i used around 4-5 coats of pearl black testors paint, the same brand used to red out tailights. Make sure you wait a couple of hours b4 you touch the emblem. (Wait overnight thumbsup).
Dont touch the emblem where it's painted unless you have to, because you will need many coats to get the borders of the emblem painted, making the paint take looooong time to really dry off.
If you use the pearl black, the emblem will look awesome when the sun hits it!
Hope that helped rice
