I just picked up a 2013 Express this week, with my previous Rams (87 Ram Charger, 02 quad w/5.9, 03 Laramie and my old 05 work truck the emblems were adhesive only with no holes, do you know if this is consistent with the 13 as well? I am having trouble finding the info. Thanks, also I blacked out decals on my Lexus ages ago, very easy just make sure you clean everything very well before re applying and use a good paint with UV resilience.

My guess is they are all stuck on with adhesive. So you just paint it. Do you think I need to prime it? I really want to black plate chrome it, but I think the emblems are plastic. If that is true, than I need to find a reproduction that is black plated.

Lightly scuff with a red scuff pad, shoot with Nite Shades, Clear Coat, and you are done. Depending on how many coats of Nite Shades you use, depends on the effect you get. A light coat will give you a black chrome look....
