Question Black emblems

Anyone purchased the black replacement bow tie emblems for the front and rear off eBay for a 2011-2012? I was going to purchase some, but thinking about taking them off and painting or powder coating them myself.

My Nox is an 2008 and I had mine wrapped in vinyl and it only cost me $25 to do that.

I've always painted mine...if done correctly, they hold up nicely, and IMO look better then the black vinyl

Lightly sand the emblem, use acetone to clean it, let dry before painting. Use plastic paint primer for a base coat. Then use w/e type of paint you wish after that, I've used factory paint in spray cans and I've used plastic paint top coats. Both lasted nicely. I never did the Nox because I already had so much "blacked out", the last car I did was my SS/TC, black emblems on a yellow looked great. On my latest car, just going to de-badge the rear, and leave the rings in the center.

I blacked out both front and back bow ties and left only the outline as part of my all black stealth treatment

Keep thinking about doing that to my SUV.
O wait I do not have a bowtie.
Darn it.
LOL

Looks good blacked out.
