I'm buying a black holden badge to replace the silver and I'm not sure which is more popular, matte or gloss black. Will gloss match the front grill? I have a sv6 vf sedan.
Cheers

I tried to get my grill badge off to paint it gloss black and nearly fkd it so I masked it up and did it on the car. Looks better now it doesn't stand out.

I got a matte black one for the VE SV6 andf when I ordered the VF, I ordered a matte for it also. When the car arrived, I put the matte badge on and it looked weird as the plastic on the grille is glossier on the VF than the VE. But mine is a black edition, not sure if it's the same on all SV6s. I ordered and replaced the VF with a gloss one and it looks much better.

If you want a nice gloss black badge,degrease them real well,very lite spray of undercoat then get one of those small cans of Warrigal black or Ebony black,I think they are Holts,same colour different name,it’s the same colour Holden used to do on their cars,ie door frames and such,DONT use any other as it will come out crap,I’ve used it for years and swear by it.
