    Well I got a new emblem from metalmiller. It is the decepticon emblem and I was wondering what to do with it? Chrome? Black? Leave it as is?

    i voted leave it as is but really I think you should just paint the silver cirlces on the back of it black and leave it the way it is, or have it powder coated

    what color is your truck?

    I vote paint the logo a really dark purple and black out the rest. 2001 dodge amethyst pearl... with a dark primer it will almost look black... but it'll be purple so it will be like all authentic and sh*t
    :D

    My truck is silver. I had not thought about powdercoat. I think that would be an interesting way to go with the dark purple.

    Ok, well after a few people gave some input I decided to try the black. So I went to Home Depot and found some "textured flat black" and this is what it looks like now.

    I color matched mine to my SSM. I had it on the grille like yours then when I went to the satoshi I put it on the mesh. Don't have any pictures on the mesh yet though...
    Edit: here's a pic of it on the old grille.

    I'd vote chrome or color-match. Black seems to blend in making it very hard to see. I think its something I would want to show off :)
