Re: Emblem paint

Most folks just replace themb (when new ones are available). But, I suppose you could try to go to hobby stores, and look for the right shade of red, and whatever other colors are on the emblem.

Re: Emblem paint

I've read about folks using finger nail polish, it's enamel and comes in a gazillion colors with a built in brush.

Re: Emblem paint

I seem to remember another method of using a syringe flow paint into the desired area.

I have a syringe and I will try that method. Looks pretty easy to do.

Re: Emblem paint

If I knew about it, I sure forgot about that syringe method. Very kool.

Re: Emblem paint

When I did mine I wish I would have added a drop or 2 of hardener in the syringe. Took forever to dry but, it was a fairly thick coat.

Re: Emblem paint

I've used Testors model paint it is (was?) an enamel, and you can mix it to achieve the color you want if theres no pre-mixed version the right shade.

Be careful not to use too much hardener. I did, and ended up with the paint buckling and breaking off in chunks. Look like crap now. Been waiting for a reason to pull my fenders so I can get the emblems off and re-do them. I will say that the syringe method made it pretty easy though.
