I used fishing line in a sawing motion. There are a couple of tabs that stick into holes in the tailgate that will stop the fish line, so you have to work your way around them. It's actually very easy.

Even these have a green hue under certain lighting conditions. Since I have a second set of these, I'm going to paint one set with PXR and see if I like the look better. I have already tried flat black, satin black, gloss black, PX8 black and so far have liked the black chrome the best. However, my truck is PXR, so that might be the one that wins over the black chrome.

Steal away!
A great thing with these forums is the sharing of what works/doesn't work and you can 'see' if you like something before you try it. Good luck in your mods and post lots of pics!

I wouldn't do it. There is enough of a green hue to the Black Chrome that I know you would be very disappointed in what it would look like on something big like your grill surround (front end) or mirror backs. My front emblem is great, but the back (tailgate) emblem does show the green tint a bit under certain light. Even though it's only slightly larger then the front one, it's enough to amplify this green effect.

X2 Brad, your are spot on, I did my badges a while back and they turned out so good I decided to do my grille. It turned out horrible, looked more green than black. I ended up replacing my grille it looked so bad. Then tried to sell it for next to nothing and couldn't get a dime for it, ended up giving it away.

Ha, no bad memories, actually turned out for the best cause really like the grille I ended up buying. I just cringe when people start talking about doing large expensive items like bumpers & wheels with this stuff.
