it depends on how shiney you want the emblem, if you dont want it shiney go with matte black thats what i used and with a clear coat.

I just painted mine 2 days ago and used gloss. It's actually hard to tell that they are gloss since they are so small. They have move of a luster than a shiney gloss to them.

I thought about using flat or a "hammered" finish, but with them being kind of small, with no real big flat durfaces, I choose gloss.

I also thought that a flat of hammered finish might tend to be a dirt and/or wax magnet.

Here's what mine look like in gloss black:

Rustoleum makes a rattle can that will spray into a hammered finish. In my area the cans sell for about $6 ea.

Check Wallyworld.

This mod definately falls into the cheap category. Even if you have to buy the paint and 3M tape, it should only cost you a whole $10.

Find a black like the put on the old sequoia wheels. Similar to the black on the ///M3 wheels. I think that emblem color may even be an option on some toyota models (non Tacoma)
