what is Elbum??
I know I'm old and slow, but I checked google, the dictionary and the word "Elbum" does not exist.
and someone please tell me what "Elbum" has to do with "exterior" tech.

Thanks.

I am pretty sure you cant remove the chrome. Just paint it black if that's what you want.

Like I said the emblems are silver plastic so I don't think you can actually "remove" the silver. If you want them black just paint them. If want them solid silver soak them in a bucket full of acetone.

Good luck with the acetone. I tried xylene once and the plastic disintegrated like broken glass.

When I hear emblem I think Ranger fender emblem. Your talking about the ford oval and I have no clue on how to do that sorry.
