Default Liftgate Applique/Emblem Painted

Hello All,

Just wondering if anyone has painted their rear liftgate applique? If so, do you know what the material is? Currently mine is the chrome plated version and I would like to have it painted gunmetal and blackout the emblem. I just want to know the base material so that the chrome plating can be stripped off properly.

Thanks,
Billy

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's all plastic. That being said, check out the vinyl options that overlay these bowtie's on ebay. I used to paint all mine but the stuff they have on ebay is pretty enticing.

Obviously, the vinyl comes in squares and you have to cut it how you like but you can also adhere it to the chrome!
