Black out dash

Anyone blackout their dash? I've seen the HD one and Yaffee one. Looking for ideas and pictures on your bike. I have a hot rod red 2017 RGS. Thanks in advance!

I bought one off ebay & had it powdercoated vivid black. I then replaced the insert with a stock one. My bike is denim black with vivid black accents and chrome and black motor parts.
Sorry, I don't have any pics of it with the dash. The pic in my signature is an old one.

I had mine PC. Mine is a 09 and Performance machine doesn't make a insert for that year to match my filler cap. So I went with a Arlen Ness

Here's mine, I took the stock one off and had it powder coated wrinkle black, then reattached the OEM emblem with 3M heat resistant double stick tape.

Thanks for the picture. It turned out real sweet. I wanted to reattach my emblem as well. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks! Look for the 3M VHB series double sided adhesive in sheets, it's the same stuff Harley uses for the emblems from the factory and really holds.
