BradWhite has a good writeup on how to bake them. I plan on blacking mine out next week sometime, in addition to the charcoal laminX films i ordered for the rear. So far paint has held up great, no chips or scratches.

My advice? As long as you have the funds available to replace them if something goes wrong, go for it.

Looks good I will be doing this to mine. I was going to buy the coupe grill but this looks easy enough and much cheaper. I wonder how it would look body color (Vista Blue) or maybe a satin black?

I think its the emblem from his trunk.
He probably used some 2 sided 3M tape.

Thanks for the how-to, mate! I messed mine up a little bit, but I think it's a good first-attempt:

what were the mistakes you've made? (you said you messed it up)

I'm probably going to do this soon, but I'd wanna get some more advice first :]
