The emblem is OEM element
1st layer (plastic-dip) so you can peel it off if you mess up
2nd layer (red caliper paint 900 degree rated stuff)
3rd layer (one more coat of red)
4th Layer (Automotive spray enamel clear)
the red lip
I took off the entire front bumper and taped everything off except for the lip around the lights (is also caliper red paint)
What else do you need to find out about. Go ahead and ask away!
I'm going to do my badges today and the 'Element' word on the back and post results. I'm not sure on the colour yet, my E is black I was thinking 'Red' but after seeing your Grey E with Red I may take a different approach because Red does look amazing with the colour you have.
Really curious to see the outcome, wish me luck I'm not a mechanic just got hook into my E and is from 2007 want to make it look better.
Did you do anything inside? I'm thinking about doing something similar for the trim on the inside.
Gadgets, door handle and piece around the radio and console.
