for painting my emblem............i washed and scrubbed it real good with dawn dish soap and a scotchbrite pad.(use hot water) let it dry overnight, unless you have an air compressor handy. then when painting it......use a few coats of adhesion promoter and whatever paint you want to use. i used duplicolor flat black. here's how mine turned out.

spray paint? can i sand it down a bit to make the paint stick better? or is that just going to make the finished product look bad?
