Whiskers in red instead of black...

"Red-out" my whiskers instead of blacking it out...

PoonRacing Bezels look good, but if my pick I will do the de-badge.

frinesi2 Bezels look great. That was my first mod too. Those chrome ones are sooo gaudy.

Sfxlance I did the exact same thing back in july, but I used plasti dip that way i didn't have to remove the fog bezzel or emblems.

BaconZombie That's probably what I'll do. That's what I did with the rest of the trim pieces.

JimsterG IMO Looks too 1990's, but some people like the old school stuff, so whatever trips your trigger!

Just Tom Looks really sharp! I like it.

RonMaiden I'd just Plasti-dip the emblems since that eliminates the need to remove them and you can reverse then if you or the next owner likes.

BaconZombie Cool. I've removed plenty of trim pieces before, just want sure how everyone was doing their badges in black. Might have to do that on one of my days off.

adamturbo use dental floss or fishing line to get them off, then use claybar and water to get the sticky crap off the paint do not use solvents as that will ruin the paint. remove all sticky crap from the badge and paint as you please. to reattach get some 3m double sided tape get the stuff with the red backing available from most hardware stores. you will need to cut the tape in strips and apply it to the badge , then stick the badge back to the car. use some painters tape to set up a nice straight line before putting the badge on
