Wanting to add a few personal touches!

Alright there are a few things I would like to add to the jeep but not sure on how to go about doing a few of them.
I am going to paint the srt logo in the wheels red which i have done before and its easy.

Going to paint the SRT logo in the back hitch plate red also which shouldnt be to hard.
Now the questions i have is how did some of you paint / which type of paint did you use on the underhood srt logo?
And last but not least thinking about doing the JEEP in red or black on the back chrome trim under the window but it may be too much.
Wanting some opinions on these little custom touchesand appreciate any input.
This is my jeep just to clear any confusion on the look I'm desiring. I really want the trailhawk look its pretty sick!

And the look I'm basing it off of.

i think paint in the hitch cover might look neat. But if you do one, you pretty much have to do it all for consistency.

I voted no because I like the truck the way it is, I might lower mine and maybe rims, other then that, I won't be changing it's appearance I don't think.

that being said, I'm curious to see how it would look should you choose to do it on your rig.

So you have a 2012 Jeep SRT8, and I am assuming it's red?

So let me get this all straight:

You are for sure going to paint the "SRT" on your wheels red.

You are thinking about painting the "SRT" on your hitch cover
You are thinking about painting the embossed "SRT" on the hood liner
You are thinking about painting the hood vents.
and, You are asking a poll in this thread about painting the license plate brow (chrome liftgate strip) red, black, or left chrome.


I would paint your wheels SRT, paint the hood liner, paint the hitch cover and remove the SRT8 badge, or leave the SRT8 badge and not paint the hitch cover, I would go either black or red on the brow depending on the rest of your color scheme, and I'd leave the hood vents black, or paint them gloss black.

Pictures coming soon apparently people have no vision or imagination.
