Repainted emblems

So what do you guys think? I used a little Carolina chrome(Chrome paint) and some red paint to make the badges look a little more like the newer ones. I'll clear cot them and put them back on. They came off my 02

Did you paint those to make them chrome or did you use acetone and remove the paint first??

I just wiped off the paint after I sprayed it on, and then used the wifes fingernail polish remover to wipe them clean. I sprayed clear coat on them and two of them started flaking instantly. WTF? So now I have to completely strip the two down and try again. Well I just read that you arent supposed to mix laquer and enamel. Well one side made it through so I guess I'll wait and see if it actualy dries or not. Worse case, I'll get some 05-07 badges off ebay. I also came across an a seller on ebay that does custom emblems with the international logo and powerstroke logo in one. They loked cool but I don't like the Orange on the powerstroke letters. Here is another one on the truck. and a link to a guy that does the custom decals.

eBay Store - FLIPS: POWERSTROKE INTERNATIONAL: 6.4 TURBO DIESEL, 7.3 POWERSTROKE
