Diy

you don't buy them, you paint them yourself

just take a blow dryer and use it along with some fishing string or dental floss to remove them.

Paint with black paint

replace on vehicle with 3M double sided mounting tape.

Voila! Black Badges

I figured most just paint them, just never painted chrome before. Probably just need to sand them down a bit, primer them, then paint black?

that sound about right?

Or just clean them and spray some bedliner on them.

Bedliner would look pretty darn good! might look into that...thanks

Hey Maintenance Man, looks like you found time to do the badges, I guess the grillcraft project is next? lol.. After sanding to get the gloss off, I recommend getting Adhesion Promoter. It is a clear base primer that really helps with the final coat stick. I used it on painting my grille and no chips or peeling so far.

I still ended up doing the easy route for now, I had a job cancel on me. I just semi de-badged my truck. probably keep it like that for awhile. But, i will keep the adhesive primer in mind...thanks
