I left them on the truck, used masking tape behind them. Got a textured black spray paint and went to town. 2 Years and 2 crappy Iowa winters and they look exactly the same as when I did them.

I think he means only paint the blue in the oval, leave the lettering chrome.

They make liquid painters tape. It's easy to cut out what you want to paint. You can also just use masking tape. Make sure you have a sharp razor.

If you get the overlay off of the emblem, get all the blue off I used elbow grease and nail Polish remover, then all the thing you want left chrome use a crayon and go over them, paint the whole thing with paint, scrape off the parts with crayon off use your finger nails or something similar that wont leave scratches and the chrome is chrome the blue part is black
