    My mother just purchased a lexus SC300 and she hates the gold emblems... Is there any recommended way to paint the emblems (she wants to paint them black).. Should we take them off and then sand them down first and then paint? And would the lexus touch up paint be adequate for this job? Thanks guys:bowdown:

    word you either have to dip it in acid for a few weeks or sand the shit out of it, which is hard for emblems
