Thanks chunk6649! I enjoyed going through this post. I recently swapped out my front grill so now I have a black emblem in the front and a gold one in the back. This sounds like a great way to match them.

I was wondering if anyone has done this around their lights? I've got a black grill now but chrome for headlights. I was thinking about dipping the chrome but was worried the lights would get hot and cause issues. Any thoughts?

The outside should be fine but it does not work well on the inside, only lasted about a year when I "blacked" out the chrome on the inside of the headlights.
