High Temp Aluminum spray....Spray it into a GLASS cup or metal container that you don't want anymore (anything plastic will MELT!)...and use a paint pencil, and a small brush...

Mask off the emblem outline first though (only use 3M masking tape! Trust me!)...Prime it with some High Temp Semi-Gloss Black...about three coats...otherwise the Silver pretty much gets sucked into the pad, and it takes way too many coats to cover...This is the second pad I have done.

This is very time consuming, and I must say PATIENCE is the key...for mutiple colors, masking is essential, use an exacto knife, and the masking will take the majority of the time for the job...

It looks good but I don't think I will do that.

I was just wondering what type of paint...like a high temp or something.

I am going to give this a try when it warms up.

Another in depth topic is here

It has instructions as well at the end just as Gerald explained.

Anthony CHEATED! I can spot a knock off a miles away...No fair BUYING a painted pad!

All you other leghumpers take a lesson from J DAWG and TRY ONE! Patience is the key!

Or buy one from PartsRack...they will do pretty much whatever colors you want!

I've got a hood pad coming (warantee) from DC. Will Partscrack discount their painted pad if you send them a new one? Anyway, what's his price? Wish I had the time and place to do it myself, but that's NOT gonna happen.
