so far, this is one of the best mods i've done on a vehicle and like it for what little effort it took, it made a huge difference.

I like that...it looks smooth. My car is Golden Pewter so leaving mine gold actually works out in making the gold flakes stand out more.

Looks good, I usually remove mine totally but it s a lease and the front ones did not appear to be glued on so if I remove them there would be a hole.

I was told by the body shop that the gold surface on these emblems are "unpaintable", so I wonder how your guy managed to do it?

It does seem like the paint wouldn't be able to bond to it, but I would really like to do this to my car as well....

Would it be difficult to do on my own?
