Black Emblems - IS350

Hey guys,

I recently decided i wanted to paint my emblems on my is to black from chrome. Whats the best way to do this? Should i do it myself or professionally?
If i do it professionally, who do i go to and what do i look for in their work? I live near Seattle so if any of you live in the area, any suggestions?

Thank you all!

-Prince

Do it yourself...very easy. If not, shit I will do it for you. =)

If you want a matte black look try this method. This stuff is legit, I just used this on my winter wheels.

If you want a black pearl look, try my method I did a while back.
