I have the OEM 'Supercharged" emblems, but they are a flat silver, that doesn't go with my GoMango and black scheme, So I want to paint them black. Any advice on type of paint to use that would work best and be weather resistant? Sorry if it's been asked before, but couldn't really find anything.....

I think I'd rather paint than plastidip...

Thanks in advance!

Scuff with 2000 grit wet/dry, adhesion promoter, spray paint of your choice gloss or satin?

Trick is getting a good gloss coat without sanding and polishing (loads of fun on small letters, I know). Satin probably easier to get a finish coat with just spray. Light coats, 1 heavy coat without getting too close/heavy so you get orange peel or sags. If do satin, skip the clear. Clear is hard to get good finish coat with just spray. Other brands will work, I just use Dupli-Color myself. A Guy

Yeah I pretty much want the satin black. So I'm correct that if I want the satin I can pass on the sanding? I very much hope so!Thanks for the guidance once again man!

I'd still scuff and adhesion promoter, but to save the money if will never use either again, just soap and water wash, and the satin paint. As I say, light coats not too close, just need coverage, the last coat will get your finish. Since satin is way easier than gloss, as long as you don't go to heavy. it should be good looking.

Thanks for the tips brother! I'll prbably do the painting this weekend and also try to install my oem mudflaps since I just put 315s on the back. I'll be posting a shit ton of pics in the next couple weeks, pretty much a "what have I done to my challenger this last year">:)
