Chrome side vents?

Hey I saw someones truck on here that had the stock side vents but without the letters painted black. I did a search and found a hundred diff ways to paint them black and remove them but not how to get the black lettering off. I was thinking about accetone or brake fluid but I dont want the chrome to peel off. Are the side badge vents palstic? Does any one have any good segestions so I dont melt my vents. Thanks.

I acetoned mine but brake fluid would probably work better. They are plastic…brake fluid shouldn't hurt them. Definitely take them off and soak them for a bit in either one though.

I thought brake fluid ate plastic up. From my experience it will at least etch the living hell out of it.

Maybe some plastics but it comes in a plastic bottle so I wouldn't think it would hurt most plastics. I know it's used alot to strip the paint off of model cars and trains. When I was painting my side vent inserts black before I did the mesh ones I soaked them in brake fluid and it didn't hurt them. Maybe try the acetone first. I let mine soak in acetone and still had a hard time getting them off. My '00 badges cleaned up alot easier.
