try the transparent red they use for tail light painting. that way you'll keep the chrome effect. cover it with a few layers of clearcoat.

Maybe match it to body color with a different color outline on the edge? Might work out... anyways I'm interested to see how it turns!

wow, I think the front grille looks pretty freaking good. I'm definitely thinking of getting some more letters so I can do that to the front grille. Good job. Car looks good for having just painted a few things.

how did you get the front to stay?? sorry kinna clueless :)
i put the letters on a computer mat thin strong pice of plastic and used liquid adhesive it comes in like a lil tube that looks like a mini tooth past tube i put it on the back side of it and stuck it right intot he grill so it would wrap around the grill and stick on no problem

looks good but with what you're doing (time attack) I'd just lose the badges all together.

get an STi strip for the back so you can use the same emblem you have on the front

I definitely like it. I was thinking of doing something to replace the STi badge that came with my grill.

Like Saturn said: if your going for the TA look. get rid of the badges all together.
