    [​IMG]so i bought the emblems from Matt, Packerfan..As soon as they got to my house I started on them. I did a few coats of adhesion promoter, then a few coats of semi-gloss black..It finally stopped raining today, so I got at least one on(i chipped the other one, and needed to repaint tonight)

    It looks pretty dang good for now, well see in a few months thou.

    They are pretty durable once they've cured for a couple days. I hit mine with a high pressure hose and they didn't chip or peel.

    i like the look of the new black emblems on the white 1st gen

    HOWEVER

    i probably wouldve placed them just a smidge higher to not make it so noticeable that the concaved body line turns down and the emblem doesnt
