Black Chrome

I am interested in black chrome FOCUS and SES badges for the trunk of my 2010. Anyone know if someone makes or sells these?

Update: Did a version of this, pics on page 2

I've never used nightshade. I would have to take the emblems all off to do that I assume? If I nightshade em do I have to prep them somehow?

If nite-shading I'd recommend first spraying it with adhesion promoter that's plastic safe.
But I'd test the nite-shade first as I've seen it come out in a green-hue, or a purple-hue.

Hmmm, good to know. The emblems are on with double sided tape I assume? I don't know if I'd be able to get them back on straight. I am kinda retarded with small detail work like that haha.

If you were real good at taping them off while on the car, you could leave them on. You would have to tape them real good plus cover all other parts of the car you do not want painted with over spray.

I gotta agree on getting them back on straight. If they were crooked, it would really show on our trunks.

I keep thinking about what you want to do, but.......oh well.

nite shades has a bit of a red-ish tint to it, or so i have heard. it becomes more of an issue when tinting clear lights, but that is most likely why it comes out odd colors.


I think your best bet would be to find a high gloss black paint and just use that.

It'll look like a crap rattle can job if you nite shade it, because it is.

Black chrome can be done with black nickel plating, but good luck finding someone who does it. The chemistry is tricky. The most common "black chrome" that you see is paint. My advice is to pull the emblems off and find a body shop that sprays black chrome on occasion. Having them mix up some paint just for you emblems isn't practical, if they'd even do it. Leave them with the shop, or have them call you when they're going to spray someone's wheels or whatever. That's the only way they'll come out looking right.

Sounds like this might be more work than it is worth. I think it would look sweet but I can live with it the way it is.
