Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

I have been looking there but no luck at all for the slk. Kinda strange because it's a simple mod.

Hi and welcome from Nottingham England.

I used plastidip matte black paint on my front star. About 3 even coats is all you need. Later if you want to revert back it will just peel off! Simples!

Yep, this is what I did as well (even though plastidip is easy to apply in-situ, it's easier to remove the star from the car for this). I peeled it off because my other half kept telling me that someone had stolen my mercedes badge (black badge on black background didn't show up very well). I've now painted it to match the car (palladium silver) but I'm toying with the idea of different colour plastidip - red maybe?
