For those of you that have pained your emblems of any sort can you tell me the best way to do it. I want to paint my letters and stuff. Do I need to sand them at all or do any kind of prep work besides just a good cleaning?
Has anyone tried to paint their door sills. I want to change my red to something else and was wondering if I could paint it or it if would scratch off to easily. Im not sure what the factory one is done like.
Thanks for the help.

Re: Painted Emblems (dustyk)

I wouldnt paint the door sills. Would get scratched to easily IMHO. However the emblems is fairly easy. Sand, sand again to make a good surface. Make sure that you use fine grit though. if you dont you will get a crappy finish. than prime, spray color, clearcoat a couple times. Take your time to make sure each coat of paint drys. I rushed when I did my engine cover and got drips, and now I have to redo the whole dam thing again.
