Adjustment layer/filter to uniformly colorize illustrator objects?


I'm trying to create an image that contains a set of logos. Each logo has different colors and I need to neutralize them. I tried converting the image colors to gray scale but it's not uniform, some grays and darker than others. The end results should be something like this:

How can I achieve this in Illustrator, preferably as a filter that I can toggle on/off?

All this logos have the same fill color (C:45, M:30, Y:25, K:0).

So, to convert the logos to grayscale:

  • Select all the shapes.

  • Edit > Edit colors > Recolor Artwork

  • Change the numbers of colors displayed to 1

  • Change the colorization method to exact.

  • Double-click the color box > Select this color (C:45, M:30, Y:25, K:0) > Click OK.
