Vents and badges??

I'm working on blacking out my truck, and I want black Ford badges and side vents. I've heard of a lot of guys just painting them themselves. Any tips on what kind of paint or anything else I would need? Thanks!!

Just go to home depot and buy a can of plastic paint. I can't remember the brand but the one I bought has a picture of a plastic chair on the front. It's really easy to do. I also bought an industrial scotch type pad to rough it up a bit. Took my time getting in all he holes and grooves. Then paint. Make sure u spray from different angles so u get evrything in the square holes. I would put a coat on and wait about an hr and do another coat. Think I put 3-4 coats on. Left a day to dry and then popped them back in. Really easy and looks great. It's glossier than the factory black ones I've seen on some work trucks. Let me know if u have any other questions

And taking the vents out can be a lille tough. Alot of plastic there held in pretty firm so be careful working them off. I believe it's 3 pieces on each side. The toughest part is removing the maroon part from the chrome. They r held together by a thin metal, washer like clamp over very fragile plastic studs. Be very very careful working them off. But u will figure it out. Just takes about 45 minutes to get them off and apart. Hope this is helpful to you.

Wish I knew how to post up pics on here and you guys would be able to see what they look like. I think it changes the look big time!

Just find a online photo service like Photobucket or something and just use the image code from there after you upload the pictures on the site!

Just do a search, this has been beat to death over the last 6 months. There are many threads on how to take the vents off and painting techniques.

I don't know how it works for you but when I've tried to use the search engine it doesn't really narrow it down much for me? Maybe I'm not doing it right
