Any tips on spray painting emblems gloss black

Wondering what kind of sand paper and spray paint to use, to get a real smooth glossy look. Don't know if to use high temperature paint or regular plastic paint.

What about Plastidip and Glossifier?!

What about just purchasing OEM black emblems?

Re: Any tips on spray painting emblems gloss black

I just youtubed the plastic dip and glossifier and I gotta say it does come out looking pretty bad ass. I think ima give it a try on the grill and on the rear handle piece. I'm not sure if you have to do any sanding or not?

Re: Any tips on spray painting emblems gloss black

I know going with the oem parts would be the best way to go, but I'm trying to go the cheaper way, the oem parts are a lil pricey.

Re: Any tips on spray painting emblems gloss black

I have not tried it yet, but here is what Dupli-Color told me. "You will have to lightly scuff the surface first. I would use 220 grit sandpaper. Then you use the Adhesion Promoter, CP199. This will ensure you get a good bond between the two. You can use the General Purpose Premium Enamel and the clear coat to protect it."

I have gotten some black OEM emblems, but would like to paint some other ones. Has anyone done the painting?

Update - I painted my chrome grille rings. Although it was a little windy when I did the painting and it caused some minor problems, the rings didn't come out too bad.

I painted my emblems like this before the black OEM ones were available. It turned out well, but it took me a long time to get it looking good, I ended up biting the bullet and getting the OEM ones. Car is too nice to have non perfect emblems on it. My wife thought I was crazy as she said it looked exactly the same and to a casual on-looker it does, but it always bugged me not being perfect.

I agree with you about the OEM emblems which is why I got them for the doors and hood. I painted the grille rings because they weren't too bad to get off and I didn't want to pay around $230 for new ones just yet.

I am thinking of painting the emblems on the back though. The "LAREDO" does not come in black. Also, I don't like how the recesses of the "JEEP" emblem are black also. I think that it makes the "JEEP" stand out less.

I painted them gloss black. If you or anyone else needs the part numbers, they are below. Dupli-Color sells a couple different gloss blacks and clears.

Adhesion Promoter - CP199
Gloss Black - DA1600
General Purpose Clear Coat - DA1692

On my old car I plasridipped the emblems and surrounding area. Then pealed just the letters and used the dip as masking and painted the emblems with gloss black paint. then pealed the surrounding area.
