Default Black Emblems

So going along with my black-out theme for my car I decided to paint a few more things black. Both Saturn Emblems on each door, the emblem on the hood and (even though I dont really like it) the TWM shift knob. Let me know what you think. (sorry my cars so messy)

You just slide them upward and they pop off. You might have to pry the chrome plastic part off first. It comes off pretty easy.

It actually looks really nice in the car. The picture makes everything look kind of grey.

Question Re: Black Emblems


Where did you get the black emblems? I want to get a set myself. I think they look way better than the stock. Let me know something. Also I just got my TWM Short Shifter in today. Will be putting it in this weekend.

Thanks but I didnt buy them I removed and painted the stock ones. The TWM STS is alot of fun. I really dislike my moms 07' Ion stock shifter now that I have TWM. Big difference.

I bet it is much better and less aggrevaiting to shift now. Is it harder to shift then the stock, or is it an effortless job? Smooth shift?

Its a much nicer and more solid shift. The kit comes with new steel buching mounts to replace the stock rubber ones. Plus the weighted shift knob makes it feel like a sports car.

Did you get that gun metal knob? I am thinking on getting that stainless steel Type R knob. I love the oval look. What do you think?


Oh nevermind... I see in the thread that you painted it. Does not look bad at all? Did you prime, paint, then gloss it?

I knew there had to be another Saturn inthusiest in this valley. Good to see it. Thanks for the compliment. I used about 4 coats of Satin black rustoleum and about 6-7 coats of rustoleum clear coat. I used alot of clear coat just to be safe.

The hood emblem as the only tricky one because I had to peel off all the old adhesive and apply new. Stlii pretty easy.
