I painted the badge yellow and a coat of reflective clear.
No letters yet. The badge is just held on with a loop of tape. It is just temporary for the photos.

Looks really cool. Did you disassemble the bezel to paint or just mask it off good. I must say that the black bezel really does look better than silver.

I just mask it off very carefully.
The black bezel is the most dramatic change of it all. It may be my best mod to date.
