    Tired of the chrome emblems and lettering on your 4R, but don't want to go with the basic black overlays? Do what I did then, and DIY custom paint them... :)

    See the article at the following link for the full scoop, including lots of details, pics, and tips:

    Let me know what you think, as well as if you have any questions.
