I have considered it but I'm still back and forth. And since its much harder to put it back I'm gonna wait on.

I was just wondering if it had any effect on the FM radio? Thanks man! The truck looks BA by the way nice work!
Here's a quick list of steps on how I did it. (I used the rattle can kind, $6 at Home Depot in the spray paint section)
1: tape off a square around the badges
2: spray 4 coat about 10 minutes between coats (each coat I made sure to spray from every direction to evenly coat it.)
3: once it drys (about 10-15 minutes after the last coat) I peeled the extra off from around the badges. I pulled what was left on the inside of the letter with a toothpick. It basically cuts itself around the badges.
4: I took a razor and traced the groove. Slow and steady the pace.
5: the edges should peel right off leaving the black in the center.
I did get the antenna done, the fm seems to work just fine. But I never really used it in the past because I've been using the free SXM while I have it.
I've got the cross on the front of the grill dipped as well. I'll post pics as soon as I can. It's been raining lately so I haven't had a chance to clean her up.
