    If I was doing this, carbon on the hood bulge is my pick.

    Thanks Trap, that was my first option. I'm thinking painting these yellow and putting on the side of the bulge:

    Yeah, I don't know if yellow emblems on the hood will give you what you're looking for but blacked out would.

    Agreed, just found out that the grill emblem is recessed. Limits options for replacement. Guess it's a good sign when the owner at Velo said he knows what I'm looking for.

    Thanks I'm really excited to see how it turns out. Especially with the blacked out chrome and wheels.
