It was actually super easy, I bought a spare one to paint while the chrome one was on the vehicle. I used black "Plati-Dip" to spray it black. About three coats. Then it was as easy as heating up the emblem and sliding my debit card behind it to break the adhesive and pop it off. The car has two clips and the new emblem has two prongs that slide right in to it.Ahmed, It looks great, my ILX is crystal black as well. What did you have to do to install it/turn it black?
