I always find it funny when people meticulously tape off their truck to do this, when the emblem just pops off the truck. Way easier to pop it off, spray it, pop it back on. Done, no taping.

I had to run a check this out when I read this post....SOB!!!!!!! I thought it was the same like the rear. GM melted the tabs on the rear. So yes, I made and ass of myself for assuming it was the same... Now with that being said, I didn't have to worry about breaking and tabs :P

What brand paint did you use?

Did you clear coat over the color?

But doesn't the chrome trim come off with it? He didn't paint the chrome trim.

 

This is a great looking mod. The color matched emblems look great on both of the GM twins. I like the contrast of the red on my blue truck or else I would do this.

So what type of paint did you use? Brand?

 

I guess I should say I have a couple of choices with my truck to change the emblem color to black or silver. I'd like to know specifically what type of paint to use and while black would be a easy choice, I'd like to see what options are available in silver if I wanted to color match.

 

I've used spray paint made specifically for plastics for years and I probably already have a couple of colors on hand. The confusion part of this process is the word "dip". Search plastic dip and you'll mostly find the type of plastic dip intended to dip tool handles and such, that's why I am specifically ask what type of products most people have used with success.

 

The front emblem will take a bug beating, I'm wondering how the plastic spray color with clear coat will hold up over time? Washings?

 

I wouldn't mind spending the coin for reproduction emblem although there are a couple I've found that seems to be priced in the flat out stupid range. Billet and other non-plastic emblems are a possibility I would consider but I wouldn't want the emblem to protrude significantly enough where crud would eventually get behind it and possibly dislodge it, most seem to use some type of double sided tape to hold it on.

How much little changes make a bold statement.

Looks great!! What did you use to get the glue off after removing the emblems? I did it on my '14 and fought hard with the glue and ended up using one of the 3M eraser wheels but it pitted the paint in several spots. Really want to take them off again on my '17 but don't want to go through that again. May just white out the front and back this time.
