    Here is a black and red emblem photo. Let me know what you guys think. I think the red actually looks kinda clownish.

    With all the chrome from the sr5 package it looks horrible. However, if it was all blacked out with the BHLM... it might look 'ok.' Still... I'd leave it chrome or go black.

    Here's my photoshop attempt to see how it would look on my truck. I've been debating about whether I should do it...

    Did you paint it red, realize your mistake and quickly paint it black?

    Your truck would look good with a black grill surround and a satoshi grill mod.

    I painted it black liked it but wondered how it would look red. Painted it red tried it hated it quickly painted it black once more and posted the thread. A little bit of red still shows through even with 4 coats kinda sucks but you cant tell unless you take it off and examine it close up.

    Definitely black but I'd go with a gloss black. Matter of fact, I have it in my garage and I'll be doing it soon because I'm starting to hate all the chrome on my truck.
