    Get the vinyl decals that will fit right into the debossed (sunken) lettering.

    Sharpie looks real bad. A co-worker did that on a camaro. Spend the few bucks and get vinyl lettering

    get the vinyl or go to wal mart to the arts and crafts section and get a paint marker they have pretty much any color for $3.50 i think and it looks really good. as good as the vinyl imo only permanent

    Yup, I agree with the paint marker idea. Ive done it on 4 F-bodys now and never regreted it. You might have to refill it once everky 6 months if you are in bad weather alot. Also, make sure you use the fine or medium tips. Wide is a bitch to outline with! Use your imagination, there are alot of places on these cars that can use a little(I stress LITTLE) paint!

    I've seen some guys use model paint for emblems but I'm pretty sure that it would have to be touched up from time to time.

    It would probably be just as good, but ALOT harder to paint straight lines with. The brush would try to flare from any pressure.
