Idea 1:

the steering wheel badge...possible to remove that and paint it or better not attempt it due to airbag?

Idea 2:
Replace the passenger and rear window switches on the driver door panel to auto switches.

just mask it, be careful, and paint it. you dont necessarily have to remove it.

DO NOT MASK IT! WTF are you thinking? Do you want paint all over your interior??

If you really want to paint it while its in the car, use a paint brush..

You could also just take it out completely, and get a custom badge from 24Designs.net, Custom Emblems 24Designs.net

As for making the windows auto, you would need to get some more auto switches and do some fabbing..

definitely definitely do not spray in the car that would be dramatic find a brush on paint at your local auto center and brush it on definitely

you could use masking tape to tape it off so you dont **** it up

Yeah, i looked on that site, and couldnt find any emblems for the steering wheel.

I dont know if the chevy dealer would be able to order the switches, nor where i'd find em online.

Try emailing him. I'm sure he can still make you one even though he doesn't advertise them anymore. He can also make it say anything you want. Or have any design you want!

mine worked out. something was causing the paint to melt/peal/idk? but i sanded it all down back to the original color and used rustoleum paint. came out nice and flat, not bumps or pealing.
