plastic?

I think they are a plastic of some sort. I stripped the chrome off (brake cleaner) and shot them with duplicolor truck bed liner to black mine out.

i sure did, thanks for noticing haha
i just used a can of gloss black Krylon. the stuff that bonds to plastic, dont use regular paint it chips right off. ive had the bumper and grill painted for about 7 months now and have no trouble with the elements, just clean everything real good b4 you paint.

They do have a glue on them. There is also 2 alignment prongs on the back of them. Best thing to do is use a heat gun and a bondo spreader. If you can't get a heat gun, a hairdryer will work too but will take more time. Just take the bondo spreader once it is heated up and wiggle it between the fender and the emblem. They're will be glue left over on the fender. Either you can take your time and pick it off with your fingers or use an eraser wheel.
