Ford Emblem Idea... Need a bit of help

here is the logo in question:




now you cant tell in this picture but believe it or not the emblem is a dark blue, not the black that it appears. the FORD letters are tinted and the outer most chrome ring is darker than the FORD letters. my question is how can i get my emblems to be dark blue AND have the outer chrome ring to be darker (almsot non existent) than the FORD letters? this picture just doesnt do it justice to how damn good it looked in person.

this might help, just depends on the construction. i have a '96 splash and this tutorial worked spot on. but unfortunately my '11 focus has a one piece painted emblem.

a little. im looking to get rid off all of the chrome besides the FORD letters. but i think maybe i can use that to paint or tint the outer chrome piece that holds the oval. hopefully the Focus' emblems are made the same way.

You can't buy different colored badges anymore because of Ford copyright legal
action. I sprayed mint with HVT red, but I don't like the look. This link is more labor intensive, but definately more elegant. I'm redoing mine with new parts. East coast commutes are rough on front end grills and badges.

so i talked to the shop that did that Ford emblem. they say the outer most chrome ring they tinted dark enough to make it like that instead of painting it and tinted the blue oval section enough to make it a dark blue. gave me a price of $125 to do front and back emblems. he said it'd be $75 if im willing to remove the emblems myself.

That's a lot of detail and work, and they did a great job. It looks good.

Are you going to do it?
