    Blacking out some Chrome

    Hey guys,

    So today after work I brought Franky into the shop and did some minor work on his exterior. I am not a fan of chrome so I decided to black it out. Had been debating between Gloss black trim paint, Matte black trim paint, Satin trim paint and then a metallic paint. After bickering with myself for a bit, I painted it Metallic black, and I used one of Nissan's paint codes, G41.

    What do you guys think?
    (Also removed the MICRA lettering)

    Nice job on the painting, looking good.

    I went with matte black plasti dip for my front grill, rear emblem and the emblem on the steering wheel. Im still very happy with it.

    I hadn't even thought of doing the one inside, is it easily removable?

    That is a lot of work for the small badge. Hmmmm... May or may not do that. Thanks for the link to your instructions though, will look back on it if I decide to.
