Black Chrome Letters
 
So i posted earlier asking about black chrome aresol. Now i m telling you, it works great for emblems and stuff but is to darn impossible to keep even. For me at least. I tried to do it to my grille and it was an epic fail so i painted that black.

ANYHOW...
heres some pics to give you an idea of how this stuff almost changes colors.

yeah i used automotive enamel in a spray gun, i had some around the house. Then sanded it down with 2000 grit, it some flaws in it that were bugging me and the gloss was a little to glossy. rubbing compund, polishing compound, and then wax. then had to clean off the wax so i could put the letters on. It looks almost perfect....... the "A N" in Grand has spacing issues that are bothering me

Its just automotive enamel paint that came in a gallon can. My dad probably bought it 25 years ago.
