PPG does a very good job at an online manual to give the basics and a quality list of products to use. Give that a read through if you want to do it up right.

Current version of the Player
Polished the front of the frame, as well as the brake, then put some orange permanent marker on the brake lever, which I then cleared over for a candy finish. Pedals used to be fluo pink and then I decided to space them out a bit. They now have a perfect, glossy finish. The stem used to change colors, black when its cold and then turned transparent, or orange, when it got warm outside. The orange went better with the rims, though.

I got jipped and got the 15 trek slash and not the 2016 slash with the super cool purple frame. I thought i could add some spunk to my frame by coloring the teal letters and graphics purple. Anybody have any xp doing something like this? I was thinking about a purple industrial sharpi or paint pen and clear taping over the top. Or no clear tape and let the ink wear away over time, that might look kind of cool.

Anyways, would love to here some experience and what products would be good. Thanks!!

You could also gold leaf the TREK, I think it'll look fawncy, then just add a black accent to the letters and you've got yourself a winner!

Lol I'm well I'm glad you guys mine better! But if i want to change the colors of the letters did you guys have any tips? Anyone over done anything like that befor?

Dude, the letters are basically stickers. I've seen more than one person on this site use a graphics company or a laser cutter to reproduce the lettering in a colour scheme they would prefer.
If that bike was mine, I would consider doing a naval( military) camo scheme using dark blue, blue, light blue, black and just off white for the letters and fork. And maybe add details on the seat tube and rear triangle as well.

Fwiw, my wife owns that exact purple trek. It's cool, but IMHO I woulda gone with the blue one.

Probably best just getting some decals to go over them, then if you dont like it just peel it off, also much easier and cheaper
