    What's a good way to paint these? Also does any place offer the decals anymore?

    Saw them, didn't want to pay $40 for four. Says you can only use them once.

    Might do a search on this. There was a pretty extensive thread on this a while back with some good ideas.

    Likely the factory used a roller. As above, search for previous discussion.

    Found the thread, guess I'll try the roller method.

    Best way I found to do letters is get a striping brush and use testors model paint. Do the outline lay it on thick so you only need 1 coat and fill the center while its still wet then go to the next letter

    I did mine by hand with a small brush.

    I remember in the old thread someone suggested a paint roller with a paperclip as a handle and a cigarette filter as the roller!!

    I'm thinking maybe a sponge-faced "grouting" trowel. Coat it with paint then press it flat to the emblem. Essentially "printing" it evenly.
