    someone told me a couple years ago how to, but i can not remember how to do it. i want to make my f-350 and 7.3L power-stroke badges all chrome. is there something you spray on them to take the black off them, or do you have to buff them with something ?? i know easy bake oven cleaner takes paint off stuff, but i do not know if that will work for this task, or if it is to strong, i know someone on the site has done it to there truck. i thank you in advance.

    Sounds like a winner to me or just buy some already done and replace the ones that are on the truck now with the new ones.

    what i ment was i was under the impression that under the black on the logos it was chrome, and you could buff it or something to take the black off, without having to take the logos off or replacing them

    The new (2005-2007) trucks have a problem with the black paint sticking. You can see it on fleet trucks where the pressure washing takes the black right off. I would take some Meguiars polish and rub the logos to see if that will take it off. Then a good coat of wax will make em shine!
