Matte Black Emblem Caps?

So i painted my tesla T emblems matte black and it came out ok. The front better then the rear. I took my car to get ceramic coated yesterday and got it back today. Came out beautiful but i noticed some of the edges on the rear tesla "T" emblem is showing chrome ... which im assuming may have been from the detailers polishing my car. No big deal but now that ive noticed it, its gonna bother me til i correct it.

I was originally going to find a already painted "T" badges and reapply it but then i come across RPM Teslas "Model Y plastic molded T caps" that suppose to go directly ontop of the "T" badge. Dont see any reviews on it but it may make things easier as i would avoid having to take it off, and reapply the new badge directly and hope the ceramic coating around the area is affected.

Anyone have it?

I could not find blacked out badges for a fair price, so I purchased 3-M double sided emblem tape, used fishing line to remove the chrome emblems on the tail.

I painted the “T” matte black myself and reapplied in the same location. I purchased the matte black dual motor emblem from Abstract Ocean as that would be a PITA to paint and then realign all those letters.

It's only the back btw. Don't need to put on the fronts since those came out nice.
Nice work. I just purchased a set of t caps from RPM and my black emblem doesn’t have any gap in between the upper crest and the T. Did you do anything different other that push upward on the crest and down on the T? Thanks!
