Simply used some Testors Enamel in Dark Gray with a very fine tipped artist brush to fill in machined logos.

>> Rest of install was EZ - only need to remove airbag & old paddles, wheel stays put

Extended paddles make for easier reach than OEM, and obviously you can now hit them from bottom also.

All in all - I'm very happy with the new look
Thank you for sharing your pictures and your paddles look great!
