    Why paint it Black??? Chevy/GMC emblems are sacred and should be left alone. Just my opinion.

    Why get new wheels? Why change out the genius of the Chevy intake or cat back? Why debadge your truck? Because it makes it yours and modifies it to suit your taste! :)

    And to add to that, It's called Personal Preference, your taste, not being a CLONE, why do we do what we do? Because We Can, Were Americans, Were 10 and 1, Oh:rofl:, that kills me everytime....

    I was getting ready to order me a black gmc bowtie then I saw this thread and figured if someone else can do it then so can I. I think it took around 3 hours total time to complete it. A few minutes sanding it, it took around 1.5 - 2 hours to tape off the chrome edges. Then about an hour or so to paint it. I just hope the atmosphere doesn't effect it badly. I would hate to see 3 hours of hard work go down the drain. By the way, nice write up!

    Step 1: Taped off the chrome edges.

    Step 2: 2 layers of black.
    I want to post an image for this step but I can only have 4 images.

    Step 3: 1 layer of metallic silver

    Well done. That looks really good with the chrome edging you left. Fits really well with the overall look.
