How do you suggest i paint this? thanks
 
front

the back-just for the hell of it- i wont be painting the back- just want to show the back for those who doesnt know how the cheap plastic version looks like.

this is the basic clip on jump off for all SRT8's. one day i was cleaning the lower grille a lil bit and was too lazy to snap this emblem off before i got too close to it... then the click* it broke.

i ordered the real deal one with nut and bolt fastened behind it. itll be here in a couple days. but in the meantime i want to make a project out of my old clip on version.

now i want to know is there any special methods i should use on this plastic lil SRT emblem? or should i just paint it as i would anything else? (spray paint)
i want to make it engine red or the same red as the SRT8 rear emblem....just painting the chrome portions and not the black outlines to it.

im going to make a small bracket (like the real one with nuts and bolts) to glue on the backing of the old one and make it work. i want to see how it looks on my baby, if i dont like it afterwords then ill just use my new one coming in the mail.

anyways cheers if ya got any methods for me to use.

cheers-

you need to scuff it up with some 400-600 grit sandpaper. Then wash it with soap and let it air dry. Do not touch the surface witgh your bare hands!!! Then buy some adhesion promotor aand spray it 2-3 times. Then do a light prime job on it with a good quality plastic primer...preferably bulldog. Then paint with whatever color you want...doing 4-5 light coats. Then use a good quality clearcoat and spray 4-5 light coats. let dry a couple days and then buff by hand with a good light cleaner compound....ultimate compound would be good. Let dry in the sun a couple more days and then wax. DONE!
