Contest: First To Paint Their RX1 Logos

I can't get it out of my head about painting my Sony and RX1 logos to make a discrete camera even more discrete.  I think it was Moti, on another thread, who suggested model paint can do a very professional job. In my youth I used to build model airplanes so would feel comfortable using a precision brush and model paint to accomplish this feat.

Thinking:

  • Flat black Sony Logo
  • Gloss red/orange RX1 logo to match FF ring - or maybe flat black as well

...and then I think again and think,,,, "stupid".  I probably need a few beers in me first.

Anyway, the winner is the first to post a picture of their permanently altered RX1 logos (no photoshopping allowed! - been there, done that).

Has anyone considered? What are the ideal logo colors (besides white)?

I've been planning to fill mine in with black, but haven't settled on the method yet. Someone on this forum had a bad experience attempting this with acrylic paint. It didn't stick well. I'd prefer to lose this contest and have a brave person go first. Probably I'll only then test it on a NEX or RX100.
