My front one is painted black & i never had any problems, just take it off, give it a light sand with some wet sandpaper, wipe it clean then spray & clear & let dry over night & your done.

We did the carbon fiber liquidome for ours, only problem was the gold still showed, so we had to buy a new chrome bowtie and put the overlay on that one, looks real good. You will have to take the front off and there are 2 bolts to be removed. Not to hard to do.

i had a bodyshop colormatch mine and they only charged 30$, best damn 30$ ive ever spent

Thats what I plan on doing up front, I recently did mine with a spray can white just to see how its going to look if I wanted to color match like that. I was at my friends dads auto body shop and he was looking at my car and asked who did it and said it looked like total shit. I hope that means he is willing to give me a decent price to do it.... then again he did tell me 525 to repaint my front bumper .

but i would deff. just take the rear bowtie off, i think the rear looks so much cleaner with it gone imo.

if you do keep it thought vinyl rear, paint front.:2cents::2cents:
