yup totally doable.. its chrome metal ducting tape... basically sticky tinfoil made for high heat areas... available at any hardware store for about $5 a roll

And clearcoat that cover after touching up the letters. I think that'll really smooth things out. Great work on the heatshield, bud.

Clear coat will be fine with it.

Lay the first couple coats on LIGHT, to leave somewhat of a matte finish for the following coats to bind to, then lay on the next two coats about 15 minutes apart, overlapping well to leave a good gloss.

on my cover i painted it over in black then used a rag with some braakleen to wipe the new paint off the silver lettering the next day before it dried 100%, it looks awesome, but almost TOO stock looking

yes and no....you can replace it..but you can't just buy the insert....i bought the whole grill from the dealer...118 dollars..in the factory color..only way to get a shiny red emblem
