Nice addition wit the blacked out plate bracket. Have you seen any videos on using Plastic Dip? You may want to continue the theme of non chrome by using it on your emblems...I'm just sayin'.

and im just listening,when i was painting the surrounds,my buddy actually said it would be cool to see the emblems sattan,im in,i am guessing its probably a fairly TRHRIFTY mod,which is my style cuz,IM THRIFTY.any ide where i might start looking into this,i am going to go ahead and remove the IQ badge from the rear,but yes the 2 scion emblems are needing to go to 'THE DARK SIDE'

I painted my emblems black on a honda I had. I scuffed them good, degreased them, and shot them with some tough spary paint. The still rock chipped all to heck. Not a fan of painting chromed emblems. I have never gave the plasti dip a shot though. I would be afraid it would "fatten" up the emblem and lose detail. Have to try it some time.

You can find the rear ones 4.75"x3.25" (120mmx80mm) but the front one 6.25"x4.25" (160mmx110mm) that sits into the recess I have not seen on ebay yet
