Tinting Ford Badges???

Has anyone out there tinted their Ford ovals with something like Nightshades? Any thoughts/pics/ideas would be great.....I am in the process of blacking out my side vents, grill insert and exhause tips....thought that tinting the ovals might like pretty sweet...

And for my knowledge - what does everybody recommend for spray-tint? Gonna do headlights too....VHT Nightshades? The stuff Raul has on Stealth's page??

Thanks all!

Craig

take clear coat and mix in a little black and go in coats until you get it as dark as you like it....this works great for headlights, taillights, and marker lenses too

Interesting little article there.....think I might have to find myself an oval and give the spray tint a shot....before I go and do it to the truck.
