The ram head comes off of the backing. Separate the two and paint the back red and the ram black then snap them back together.

I actually used one coat of VHT Nightshade that you can buy from an auto parts store.

Looks good, did you do the outside of the lense in VHT or did you bake them apart and do the chrome on the inside? If it's nice Monday or Tuesday I've got the Chrome Shadow paint that I intend on doing on the inside of mine.

Yeah, RedRiverRam, the badge is pretty easy to get apart. Just two tabs and you fold the black part where the crease is and it pops right apart.

Here's what mine looks like painted MangoTango to match the truck
