    ok so just recently i completely debadged my 2007 off road trd double cab taco. i have decided that i want to individualize the letters on some of the badges paint them and re badge my truck. i have been using the badges that i am not going to be reattaching as test pieces so that i dont mess up the ones going back on. however i am coming accross the problem that i cant get the paint to hold on the badges it keeps scratching off rather easy. i have tried scratching the surface of the badges but still can't get it to work. i have seen that there are a lot of taco's on here with painted badges, so could please tell me if there is a certain paint needed to get the paint to hold or do i have to completely strip the silver surface for it to work or what? thanx
