I think Green does it. The place that repairs wheels. Give them a call.

Go to AutoWorld Metrotown and buy the black chrome spraycan. Think its $19.99 last time my friend checked.
I could be wrong but its called VHT?!? Just ask the salesguy and you will find it. Theres only 1-2 brands they carry.

Sand down the oem chrome emblems, then paint. Very simple.
I know some RS members did the same.
Have fun!

Depends on which brand or if the car is leased or not. It is usually cheaper to just get the colored part you want off ebay.. then DIY. Especially if the car is leased, you have to return the car back to the state it was in and it will be just simpler to swap.

I own the car, I'm going to try that paint from autoworld on a spare emblem, would gloss black vinyl be not as shiny? if all else fails I'm going with a shop like greens, anyone else know a shop that does this kind of work? Thanks again everyone

I too have a TSX and I am going to be getting all of my chrome trim done in satin black vinyl. The Euro Accords have them done this way and it looks pretty damn sweet! I will be getting Ideal Auto Salon to do thim.

What adhesive do you guys use to put the emblems back on? Just double sided mounting tape?
