People have said they wanted it, but no one has tried it. I went ahead and started on it.

Let me tell you how hard masking off this thing was. :(

It looks decent so far.... I need to go back and touch up some areas that were missed in the masking and some parts that were over painted.

heres a before



and a current.

The red of the JDM emblems doesn't seem to match the red on the si emblems, thats why I never got them. The main reason why I wanted to do this is because I hate the recessed areas in the front emblem. This emblem is the rear emblem though. I will be doing the front as well.




The bottom of the H is a bit messy... like i said it was a pain in the ass to tape off. Gonna get an exacto knife hopefully tommorow and remask and clean up some of the edging..

You should of asked blue rocket to make you a vinyl sticker instead.
I figured a sticker would be an easier route to go. But I wanted to try this out since no one has yet before. Plus I suck a decals :(

Woooooooow, that's a LOT of money to waste on those overpriced red emblems to paint them to make them look like stock! If you have any extra money burning a hole in your pocket, you can send it my way! :)

They don't look like stock, they look more like the s2000 emblems.
That's was my aim... I know the s2000 had black h emblems. Thing is they are too small for our cars.

it doesn't look like stock....... at least someone realized that.....

why can't you just guys appreciate someone doing something different, there's a lot of cars that have the red emblems and it's kinda tiring after a while, so he just decided to change the color...give him some props!
