Where can I purchase black Genesis 2.0 lettering? I was thinking about painting the current badges, but feel that to be more work than I'm really willing to do for that. I have tried to search online, had friends search online and we must all just be blind or something because I simply can't find what I am looking for... Anyone know?

You mean the lettering on the trunk? No Vendor sells a black version of them (that I know of). Only the crooked H emblem is available in different colors.

If you want black letters, you'll need to paint them. It's really not hard.

Use Plasti-dip. Cheap. Works like a charm if you're going for a matte finish.

Importshark can do them for you. The can have any of the emblems powder coated.

I have black wing emblems on my car and a black 380 GT that they did for me.

Just email with what you want, and they will email you back a price.

This is not some spraycan job that we do. It's professionally done with high quality exterior automotive paint.

If you have a paint booth at your residence and are confident in your abilities in regard to bodywork, then by all means go for it.

I get what you mean talking about the quality, but for the price of having it done I can re-spray a few times with the same rattle can. Just sayin'

By no means am I knocking the quality and anyone who doesn't feel like dealing with the hassle of re-spraying should go the pro route.

i plan on getting the chrome wing badge and chrome "200 turbo" badge and spraying them with the duplicolor shadow kit to get a black chrome look.

Well, there's more to it than just re-spraying. There's prep work to get the surface looking completely smooth and also you having to remove and re-install the emblem. In the end, it seems to make more sense to have it done once and then be done with it.

Duplicolor won't give you the glossy finish you're thinking of. You will have to get the emblem/badge professionally clearcoated to get that bodycolor-like finish.

You can visit just about any local bodyshop in your area and ask them if they can clearcoat the badges for you. Shouldn't cost more than $25 I'd imagine. Some shops might not want to do it at all, so just visit a bunch until you find one.

Those I.S. emblems do look awesome, but are too rich for my blood. I'm all for a can of paint, a can of clear, and some time to do it myself.

I promise you I can turn out a better finish with my spray can. 1st off I prep my parts very well sanding in stages, second I tack them off so no fish eyes etc show up & finally I use a $13 can of SEM Landau black that looks ****ing amazing when done. Don't preach to me about painting, because I took autobody at Columbus Tech back when I was younger & I CAN paint very well even cars in a booth. But If I couldn't paint, I still have a sponsor that doesn't charge me a dime to do WHATEVER I want to my car. :woah:

BTW, if you would like to see some of my finished work from said spray can just take a look at the butt plug single exhaust filler I painted at home in my garage that I sold recently. If you can't find the pic I will re-upload it tonight for ya! :p & that's w/o clear, imagine what I can do with a can of high dollar clear on top of that.
