Emblem Idea

i have the old emblems, but i want to change them up a little.
i know shane did some interesting work trying to DWB his emblems to match but i want to paint the black part around the chrome lettering white,

what do you guys think, should i try and do it or just not waste my time with masking and prep?

'90s style pinstripe FTL. hahaha

I thought about doing my badges chrome on red background, but the more I looked at it, the more I realized how long it would take...and lost interest. Plus, baby mama don't like me working on the truck all day long...

you would not have to reverse mask! just paint the whole thing blue, or whatever color you want the letters, then mask the letters and paint the rest of it.
