Some Advice PLZ

So I removed my old emblems to make way for my new ones and the new emblems do not cover the entire area where the old was so the paint does not match. just need some advice on how to make it a closer match. besides getting a new paint job.

thanks

you just need to wax it and clean it with goo gone or something, but not in that order

Well if it was me i'd say go and find some detail shop and ask them to make that blend as best as possible and go with that....Its not really worth it to get it repainted.

Where did u get your new style Emblems? and how much were they?
