I've been looking for 2 days now and can't find any black emblems for the front and rear of my escape. Has anyone done this yet? If so where did you get them?

I have a 2008 escape that I'm in the middle of turning into a black night. The tails are being done this weekend and front windows tinted to match the back. The only thing missing are these bloody emblems.

check your state laws most states dont allow front tinted windows

as for the embelms sorry but you might try the colorbond spray pain ... they sell it a LMC trucks that apparently bond at a different level creating an OEM look ... check it out

So I would have to paint them myself?

As to the law, yeah I know it's not allowed in MI but there are a ton of cars in my area that have the front ones tinted. And if I were to get pulled over then the only thing they do is make you rip it off and give you a warning. So I'm not to worried about that.

I have been looking for them too for my mustang. Only thing i found was someone who pulled apart their stock emblems and painted them up.

painting them is no big deal. they're all plastic now. same with grilles and other random "chrome" parts on your vehicles.

yeah, why but new ones when you can just paint them? make sure you use paint/primer that's made for plastic. you might want to consider using an adhesion promoter too.

don't forget to sand them first. just enough to ''rough 'em up''. that will ensure the paint stays on there for a long time

Hmm, didn't really want to pull them apart.

Do you happen to know if the size of the ones on the escape are the same as let's say the F-150 or Explorer etc. I have found black emblems for other fords but I'm not sure if they'll fit.
