painting badges

A buddy custom paints badges and gauge needles with fingernail paint. Comes in a zillion different colors and is durable as hell. The fingernail paint with the pink hearts in it is very popular with the girls. ROTFLMAO

Re: painting badges

Does anyone have any pictures of their badges painted? I am thinking about painting mine but want to see painted ones before I do it

Re: painting badges

If you go look on my profile pics you can see the front badges and mirrors painted with black recon markers.

Re: painting badges

Prepped, primed and used same white paint that ford uses. Did the same thing on the bottom of my truck to paint the (in my opinion) hideous gold that the Eddie Bauer comes with. Never been happier.

Re: painting badges

I use Plastidip to paint some of my badges or even my wheels. Every easy to use and to remove in case you want to replace the color.

Re: painting badges

Yes, plastidip would be great and easy to use. No need to remove the badges.
