    After following the excellent advice on here about painting the plastic dash pieces, my dash looked awesome!

    However, the “camaro” script on my glove box door was also now all black.

    I picked up a “paint pen” online from Germany that makes it look like brand new chrome!

    It’s from “Molotow”. Just search google for “Molotow Chrome” and you’ll find a bunch of results.

    I forgot to take a before pic, but I stopped half way through. You can see the chrome I put on next to the part I didn’t get to yet.

    Nice work. You must have a steady hand. I've used the Molotow chrome pen to redo the script on my Camaro also and was pleased with the result.

    Very nice job. I have used the Molotow chrome pen to do my Camaro script and it turned out awesome. I purchased my 2 mm pen from Hobby Lobby while in Georgia.
