So I had a extra Lexus emblem laying around and got a idea while at Lexfest this weekend.

1st - Cut the outside off with a small saw tool, just so that the L is showing.

2nd - Sanded it down and sent it to a chroming place around the way from my house. ( and yes they do crome plastic some how )

Since it is such a small piece I only had to wait a half ah day. Plus my boy works there and did it on his spare time so it was free.

Anyway I put it on last night not sure if I like it. Tell me what you guys think.


This is how it look now.


But I might do it badge less except the L

how in the heck do you chrome plastic?

secondly. the ring around it is part of the emblem

so now your car looks like someone tried to rip off your emblem but only got the ring

I don't know how to chrome but my friend said lets try it so he did it. It really looks pretty good up close not ghetto rigged or anything.
