Spraying JEEP logo black

How do I go about doing this? Wanting to replace the silver or chrome JEEP letters on my grill.
How can I remove it and not damage it?
What spray or paint product do you guys recommend for doing this?
Thanks

Plasti Dip. Tape off, spray, toothpick away. Spray again. Remove tape.

plasti dip, you can get it at lowes for about 6.00. comes in a spray can. i did mine, and if you get tired of it or dont like it, it peels right off.

I bought this instead, oem part comes pre spaced on some sticky plastic. Fishing line behind the old one to get it off, clean with some goo gone and put on new one. I'm sure no one else will notice but I like the look of having an original one

Yea...I ordered the $10 OEM black logo off of ebay. My local dealership wanted $48 for the same thing! I applied a piece of masking tape under the first "J" to the second "e" and ended the right side of the tape flush to the drop down of the "p". Provided a great reference when applying the new one. I just popped the old letters off, rolled my thumb across the excess to wipe it off, and then used rubbing alcohol to take off the left behind goo. Applied the new one, then removed the masking tape. Took about 10 min. Love the look!!

Just like OOOO said above I orderd mine off of ebay, I think I only paid 8 bucks maybe 10 with shipping. WAY easier than plasti dip. Looks better too
