Started removing the emblems for de-blinging this morning. Began with the front removal and sanding. I am using a Rust-O product that states that it will give a hammered dimple look (for metal/plastic applications, we shall see if it works on plastic). Now on the 3rd coat and am bored waiting for it to dry, have already waxed and buffed the truck, vacuumed the house, and caught up on mud threads. Thus the post.

At this point it looks like cast iron that has been coated, black with dark gray dimples (similar to a cook top grate or BBQ grill top).

I will take photos later, maybe. This may turn out to be a what not to do post. If not, all emblems including the wheel caps will get the treatment.

As is the norm, my wife thinks I'm stupid (she may be correct this time).

More later.

through the river and over the woods.
i painted my front emblem a rusoleum satin black to go with the bumpers. Thought about using that hammered one but stayed with a non-texture.

Loud, no doubt your truck looks sick.

It's on and looks exactly like enameled coated cast iron (cookware for your truck). Photos tomorrow as the Broncos are on.

I will be soliciting opinions.

Sorry gents,

I stripped the paint off two days ago and it has been to cold to paint (I am anal and think I can do a better job). I will paint and post this weekend.

Sorry for the delay. I put the emblem on this morning 7 degrees here. Second time was the charm, it took 2 moderate coats and 1 one dusting. In my opinion it turned out great and about 56.5% better than my first attempt. Now I will start on the remaining emblems...

One more thing, it is textured with lots of little dimples. The photos do not show this well.
